INTRODUCTION

NDOKWA ASSOCIATION, UNITED KINGDOM (NAUK) is an umbrella organisation of Ndokwa  people who have come together in commonality of interest, especially in our belongingness, pursuit of the common goals that bind us as a people in the United Kingdom. We, NAUK, desire to  promote the essence of our heritage; our collective well-being, in a way that engenders peace and harmony with, and within the respective communities where we live (find ourselves) here in the UK.

As a socio-cultural association (with local and international affiliations), we are set up in chapters (operating as local organisations of the umbrella body) to meet the diverse needs of our people in their immediate communities, facilitate relationships and engage in community impact efforts, especially among the youth.

Membership is through the local chapters. However, any Ndokwa man or woman, youth (boy or girl over 18 years) who desires to be a member but lives distant from a local chapter, may apply for membership through the national body who will admit such a person. However, he will be automatically affiliated to the nearest local NAUK chapter, and which he/she will relate in order to meet his/her personal needs in line with our constitutional provisions.

NAUK stands out as a well-focused association with a niche in cultural exchange, bridge-building and community impact. We are continuing to build a reliable tradition that helps to make us relevant in the land of sojourn.
