Please encourage your children to attend free Igbo-Language lesson on Saturday July 14, 2012 as a continuation of 2012 Summer program sponsored by Igbo Organization Inc. N.Y for Igbo Language ; Maths; English language lessons for all Igbo children in our community .
It is a bragging rite to boast that Igbo Children in the USA are doing very well Academically, Socially and Athletically (ASA). But as they climb higher and higher in their respective pursuits in life, one important aspect - "A sorry lack of Igbo language knowledge" keeps eluding them. Why?
Though not our children’s' faults, Igbo parents all over the World, have failed woefully in inculcating Igbo Language, Culture and Values into our children as they mature into adulthood. Our collective failure is very discouraging given the fact that we live in a melting-pot society" where every culture seems to be getting ahead in eminence while ours tend to be disappearing into oblivion.
Reacting against the current linguistic and cultural setbacks with an "Ọzọ Enena" mantra, the Igbo Organization Inc., NY proposes to start Igbo Language Lessons this Summer, 2012. The first Lesson will began on, July 7, 2010 at Obi-Igbo Cultural Center.
