We have been fortunate to accomplish the following milestones in the past 13 years through community support and private donations. As part of our community engagement strategy, we would like to share a little about ourselves. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in hunger and poverty eradication. We believe that education is one of the tickets to success for many members of our communities … playing a major role in resolving hunger and poverty issues globally.

Our History

Giving Back to Community was established.

The purpose of this charity is to empower the needy by providing them with basic needs such as education and nutrition. We also want to create an environment to encourage those people to DREAM BIG and be the best versions of themselves.

Our first recurring project

We began our premier food distribution.

Since 2009 we have held a food distribution event annually, having hosted over 13 in Onitsha, Nigeria. We give needy families food items to help provide relief which enables them to meet other basic needs: renting homes, getting an education, finding employment and healthcare. The number of families benefiting from this distribution doubles annually.

To help those in need, we focus on ...

Saying NO! to starvation

Join us in our Giving Back to the World effort and make an impact on the communities we touch. Eliminating poverty means you are part of a much bigger picture – our vision is to eliminate starvation caused by extreme poverty. We assist individuals or families with little or no income. We envision a society where no child lives in poverty, no one goes to bed hungry, and all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential, since poor and starving children lag behind their peers.

Quality Education

Our ultimate goal is to use education as a weapon to bring significant change in various communities. We believe it is imperative to promote and foster scholastic achievement within various communities by improving quality and standard of education in schools, and by awarding scholarships and grants to deserving children facing financial constraints who might not be able to continue their education without help.


… in the field

The issues we work on vary, yet they share 
the characteristics of being significant and complicated. We hope to make our impacts long-lasting, and we know they will not be solved easily or quickly – we cannot solve
them on our own. We perform our work in collaboration with volunteers, stakeholders
and other partners who join us in taking risks and pushing for new solutions. Our collective efforts to eradicate poverty and hunger depend on the support and resources.


… in strategizing

We develop goals and strategies before allocating resources and making investments. We continually conduct research, collect and share data on our progress, and reflect on lessons learned. Essential to this process is ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders and partners which is rooted throughout our strategy lifecycle.

… in measuring and evaluating results

We focus on measuring progress toward our goals using the most important metrics, which support learning and adjustment. However, the nature and frequency of measurement depends on the type of work. Evaluation is a collaborative learning tool that provides us and our stakeholders with feedback so we can improve, adjust, and decide how best to achieve outcomes. We work to ensure that our stakeholders have the capacity and support they need.
