Ndudi Chuku, and her husband Ikoro, were born and raised in the Ibo tribe of Eastern Nigeria. They relocated to the U.S. in 1996 and 2003, respectively, and have since become United States citizens.
The Chuku’s have firsthand experience living with inequity and poverty. They founded Mission Africa in 2002 (https://missionafrica.us/) with the mission to provide children in remote African villages with the opportunity for better lives. Originating from the mission department of their church, International Living Word Ministries, Mission Africa later separated and was incorporated as a 501c3 in 2006.
Today, through strategic alliances and partnerships, they help underprivileged children and families in Africa. They also serve South Seattle families with programs that. for example, provide kids with food, warm coats, and school backpacks.
They are both ordained Christian ministers in Kent, WA, with a passion to find resources to help people live a better life – in body and spirit.
