The Unik's Origin
how we got here!
The name derives from Mallam Muhammad Adamu UNIK. He is the father of the Founder and the Chairman of the Foundation Dr Nuruddeen Muhammad. Mallam is an accomplished educationist and was ealier an efficient headmaster while the Founder was in his formative years.
It was the environment dominated by Mallam’s overbearing traits of self discipline, dedication to duty and compassion that was to nurture, groom and mentor the young Nuruddeen. This IMPACT of Mallam Muhammad UNIK is what the FOUNDATION seeks to harness and multiply through mentorship activities across the community and beyond.
Little wonder therefore, out of the morethan 100 Million Nigerians living in absolute poverty, about two third reside in the North. Besides high rates of maternal mortality, infant death, vaccine preventable diseases and disabilities from blindness, VVF and Poliomyelitis.
Additionally, over a 500,000 bottles of codeine are consumed everyday by young Nigerians across the country, same with the intake of tramadol, rohypnol, marijuana, and other opioids. All available and credible statistics have also decided that these drug abuse epidemic is also essentially a Northern problem.
It would take morethan public sector efforts to address these endemic poverty, unemployment, poor literacy, disease and destitution. Specific and deliberate actions would have to be deployed by communities, businesses, individuals and families as well.
With its population of about 180 Million, every fifth of an African is a Nigerian and Northern Nigeria alone accounts for about 55% of the entire population.
According to a World Bank statistics in 2017, Northern Nigeria has the highest number of children not going to school in the world! The girl child education for example is as low as 20% in the North East and 25% in the North West. Most of these children (especially the boys) run the streets away from their parents as itinerant Islamic school students (Almajiris) while they beg for food and basic sustenance.
