Umez Foundation - Liberating the African Mind

For African Growth & Development

For African Growth & Development

Umez Foundation is committed to ending chronic economic, political and social problems facing African nations, especially Nigeria. These problems, mostly home-grown, are rooted in what is considered here as an Ideology of Mass Destruction (IMD) born in Nigeria in the mid-1980s.

Umez Foundation is also an advocacy group - representing the interests of Nigerian Africans in Diaspora, especially in the United States. There is a logic in Pan-Africanism and Liberating the African Mind (LAM). Explore Umez Foundation with patience and an open mind. Together, we progress, and develop. Thanks for your visit & sharing.

Umez Foundation is dedicated to my Mother, Mrs. Nwaọkụ Umez, whose leadership quality & fairness to fellow human direct my life.

Dedication to Mama (Ọjị Oke Osisi

Mama, This Foundation is for You!

Mama, I lost half of me on May 17, 2018 - the fateful day you left for the ages. My town, Akpugoeze, will long remember your prudent leadership as well as your good nature. Your hard work ethic, your perceptiveness, your sharp wit, courage, and caring nature were community property. As my hero, my role model, and my mentor, your departure continues to hurt me to this day. But my succor is your weighty legacy of utilitarian lifestyle, humanitarian spirit, uprightness, wisdom, and the boldness to condemn evil in order to vindicate justice.

Mama, I dedicate this Foundation to you and will continue to live the life of fairness you instilled in me. I can't thank you enough for fulfilling one of your life GOALS - the goal to produce a child "who can read letters in the village." 

Your loving son, Bedford Nwabueze Umez (Befọ be Nwaọkụ)
