About Us

ICSN is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1998 by Umunne Olie as a forum to empower young Igbo people. With over 1,500 members, and still growing, ICSN is the UK’s largest networking organisation for young adults of Nigerian Igbo descent.

We are passionate about our rich cultural heritage and are committed to enhancing cultural awareness amongst Ndi-Igbo and friends of Igbo land. ICSN provides the opportunity for young people to learn about their culture, build professional and social relationships and to support one another in every aspect of life.

ICSN’s core aims and objectives are:

Cultural: To increase and enhance the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Igbo culture

Social: To serve as a channel by which young Igbo people can meet one another, build friendships, socialise and identify affiliations.

Support: To build and maintain a strong community where we rejoice with one another during times of happiness and support and strengthen one another through difficult times and challenges that invariably come to us during our lives.

Network: To provide a forum where people can build networks that will promote and enhance their business
