Ahiara Development Union USA Inc, also known as American Global Rescue, originated in 1990 through the collaboration of discerning, inventive, enterprising, resourceful, and compassionate Nigerian students of Igbo descent residing in Houston, Texas, USA. Over time, these individuals evolved into American citizens, equipped with a diverse array of skills and professions acquired from prestigious institutions across the United States. Today, fueled by a profound sense of gratitude for the educational opportunities afforded to them by the United States Government, their collective vision is to extend similar opportunities to less privileged citizens and deserving individuals in Africa.

Our sincerest appreciation is extended to the United States Government for fostering our educational journey on American soil. Equally, we express profound gratitude to the Ahiara Governing Council Directors for their visionary leadership, unwavering perseverance, and kind guidance in steering the organization forward through various challenges.

The foundational pillars of this organization were laid in 1990 by compassionate visionaries - Ezeji Tobias Ogu, Lady Geraldine Orieukwu, Bon Ahuna, and Cletus Onuoha. Despite undergoing substantial structural and functional changes, the organization achieved a significant milestone when it was granted non-profit 501(C)3 tax-exempt status by the US IRS on February 11, 2000. Moreover, our commitment to making a positive impact transcends borders, as evidenced by the establishment of a branch in Africa known as the Ahiara Children Development Foundation (NGO). This extension underscores our dedication to fostering positive change and empowerment on a global scale.
