A Vision of Change

Akokwa American Development Association was established in 1989 to form a partnership between the community in the United States and the village of Akokwa, Imo State, Nigeria for the betterment of its people.

Our vision is to be a catalyst for change not only in Akokwa, but throughout Nigeria.
