Our Founders

    In 1962, Lady Eudora Olayinka Ibiam was first lady of Eastern Nigeria and she brought together women from all the major churches to be United Church Women, Enugu. This was the same time that her husband almost succeeded in setting up the United Church of Eastern Nigeria. Dr. Francis Akanu Ibiam was at that time a vice president of the World Council of Churches and together they traveled throughout Africa and had the chance of seeing newly established development projects.

    Out of this background, Lady Ibiam and her United Church Women established a vocational school for women from the rural areas to train them in family health, nutrition and leadership. The school was known as Ecumenical Centre for Vocational Education. The school was funded by social foreign groups. The first Principal came from Germany. The school was popular and trained the women to a high level in Cookery, Sewing, Shorthand and Typing.
