United Aid International was founded by Prof Alex Ikeme. The organization took off informally with people (especially women) from the founder’s community constantly coming to him for financial help to solve pressing family needs.

Then the founder realized that the model of giving money was not sustainable due to the number of people who needed help and that many people who earlier received help are in still need. Then he decided to start training them in trade, farming and vocational skills to realize financial independence. Following the overwhelming responses from beneficiaries and also supports from other financial benefactors, the initiative in 2001 culminated to an organization known as United Aid International.

The original focus of the United Aid International was to achieve poverty alleviation through women empowerment and rural development. Today, United Aid International has evolved to not just focus on women alone but youths, children, the marginalized and rural populations (rural villages and risk areas).

The scope of operation of the organization has since metamorphosed from rural development and women empowerment to human rights, peer training and welfare, entrepreneurship, skill acquisition, vocational education, poverty alleviation and economic empowerment.
