From time to time I hear stories of people that motivate me to live better - to be better. A few months ago I had the privilege of snapping some photojournalistic shots of Chidi & Emenike Ukazime after a presentation.

They started the Intercontinental Education Community Center (ICEC2) in Otampa, Nigeria and Colombia University to help with the creation of the first green school in Africa.

ICEC2’s vision is to provide the opportunity for millions of people to have access to education that will stretch into their communities. They plan to do this through not only providing education for students, but to use the ICEC2 building to house medical clinics, training on health/hygiene, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, adult literacy programs and entrepreneurial training, including sustainable farming.

ICEC2 will also be powered using solar energy, which will provide a sustainable and reliable resource to the surrounding communities.

7 acres of land in Otampa, Nigeria have been purchased and the designs for ICEC2 have been completed. The next step is to prioritize and provide details on how each portion of the school will run. In order to help, we have partnered with ICEC2 and Colombia University’s International Development Club to help accomplish this next step.

Keep on the lookout for updates regarding this project and the progress of ICEC2. To learn more information, you can visit their website at www.icec2.org. Or, click here to donate to this project.
