About Us

As we graduate and move on with life, memories of our experiences at school continue to shape the strong and successful women we become.

The USA/Canada Alumnae Chapter

The USA/Canada chapter of the FGGC Onitsha Alumnae Association was founded in 2009, originally by a few alumnae from the pioneer class of ‘82 through the class of ‘86, and has quickly extended to include active alumnae from across various graduating years.

The chapter’s membership continues to grow, and its social activities and charitable works, have garnered the recognition and support of the school, as well as other alumnae chapters around the world.

Our Mission

To provide opportunities for FGGC Onitsha alumnae across North America, to collectively give back for the continued growth and development of our Alma Mater and society, and to promote networking between alumnae that enrich their professional and personal lives.

Our Vision

To build a strong sisterhood and provide all Alumnae the opportunity to actively and collectively support the school through service, philanthropy and leadership.

Our Goals and Objectives

  1. Maintaining a comprehensive database of alumnae community in North America, to enhance collective engagement and contributions to our alma mater.
  2. Supporting the institution, which guided us through our formative years, by enhancing the educational (human capital) and infrastructural development (living environment), of the institution.
  3. Providing avenues for social and professional mentoring & networking for the alumnae community.
  4. Implementing fundraising and social events/activities like the bi-annual conventions to support our alma mater.
