Founding

Opening

The founding of The Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku Foundation, and the development of its mission and purposes, have entailed the following formative aspects:

History and Founder

The Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku Foundation was established in January of 2017 by its sole Founder, President and Chair, Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku — as part of ongoing work he has carried out for over three decades, leading also to his founding of The Chinyere and Chinelo Ikoku FoundationThe Ikoku Charitable Trusts, The Ikoku Group, Publiks Inc, and Humana Sancta. Where appropriate and approved by the Founder, these entities endeavor to coordinate their efforts and resulting service to communities.

Causes and Concerns

The Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku Foundation was also founded and developed in response to the concerns below:

Concern for Africa
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in Africa
Concern for Diasporas
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in the global diasporas of Africa, in the Americas, Asia, Australasia, and Europe
Concern for Shared Societies
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in communities and societies of shared concerns and structures with Africa and its global diasporas
Concern for Ethics
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in issues pertaining to ethics
Concern for the Human and Humane
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in the human and humane, with the Founder’s insights from such concern proving valuable during several periods, preceding and during the formation of The Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku Foundation, where this Founder was subject to a set of inhumane behaviors that entailed violations of the autonomy, confidentiality, freedom, liberty, privacy, and sanctity of the Founder’s being, brain, mind, self, soul, and spirit*

*for further regarding these discriminatory and inhumane behaviors, see Incompatibility with Founding

Concern for Difference
— the Founder’s abiding concern for and longstanding interest in issues pertaining to difference, with the Founder’s insights from such concern proving valuable during the aforementioned periods, able to elucidate that — as also experienced by others — such inhumane behaviors depend upon and employ notions of human and perceived difference (including those pertaining to birth and citizenship, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sex) to elicit active and passive support for persistent, pervasive and profound violations of a person’s humanness.*
