PRE-MARRIAGE, MARRIED & FAMILY LIFE SUPPORT/SEMINARS/WORKSHOPS AND COUNSELING.
With Pre-Marriage Persons:
For expected marriages especially of significant “National Colours”; marriages that are inter-tribally destined and/or are divinely providential; and in “Charity, supporting the right to establish a family”, being a human right and service to the common good, and man’s co-operation with God’s work of creation.
With Married & Family Life:
To offer specialized seminars and workshops to Single and Married Mothers and Fathers who want to improve their parenting skills and get hold of their growing children and/or support the raising of their grand children.
LUCI considers: That the family must be the subject of serious attention and support; everyone must keep in mind that a great part of our social and even personal problems has its roots in the failure or the collapse of family life, that it is an outright fallacy to fight against juvenile delinquency or against the prostitution of women while though favouring the discrediting or deterioration of the institution of the family! And yet, the family remains the backbone of society,the nation.
The Unity-Flame Programme:
Doing a regular presentation series of our considered “icons” of inter-tribal marriages (senior citizens by age) who have become flag-bearers of outstanding inter-tribal marriage; otherwise, their offspring(s) accordingly; we might begin to learn a few things as family and/or as a nation.
Robust Counseling Services:
Promoting a highly esteemed and robust counseling support to Pre-marriage Couples, Married and Singles (recognizing the very high vulnerability of inter-tribal, and inter-ethnic marriages and resultant impact therefore on innocent children and the society), with a view to making a success/harmony of every such marriage, fostering the mutual desire to getting it better: with volunteer counselors of Christian and Muslim backgrounds to support such families as necessary.
A Daily Reach-out Programme:
- LUCI will “celebrate” weddings of marriages of significant “National Colours” (being inter-tribally significant) on invitation.
- LUCI will send “Eagle Greetings” at childbirth to such couples and such other families whenever and wherever this blessing of procreation occurs.
- In all other circumstances, in joy or sorrow, we will be there with our families: BEING THERE CARING; in holy solidarity our incontestable crave for integral and solidarity humanism.
IN-DEPT FAMILY ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMMES
LUCI will actively be concerned with advancing studies and human development of our families, their children and wards by various strategies which will include:

COMMITMENT TO IDENTIFIED STRUCTURES OF NATIONAL UNITY
Promoting, initiating, strengthening and supporting as appropriate, physical, material and institutional infrastructures considered as catalysts to national unity; institution like the National Youth Service Corps Scheme.
Promoting Corpers’ Welfare Initiatives:
- Voluntary activities will be carried out to support the aspirations of the founding Fathers of this unity scheme.
- Promotion of physical infrastructures to engender the welfare, comfort and inspiration of participants in the scheme.
- To be a civil society voice for the scheme.
Identifying, Promoting and Supporting Programmes to embracing Hate-Free/Violence-Free nation: LUCI will consciously work innovatively to create these programmes and be sustained organically; as integral element of the overall transcendental goal.
Identifying and Promoting such other structures:
Other structures that would be considered as pillars of national unity; like in the sphere of sports, in cultural unity (relations among cultures) and other areas of typical achievements of national pride.
THE SPECIAL WOMAN’S DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Utilizing the instrumentality of training seminars, workshops and our counseling platforms, a special focus shall be deployed, continually seeking out for inspiration, the Naomi’s, the Ruth’s and the Esther’s of our time; outstandingly dignified women building bridges; could be your daughter or my granddaughter as God’s instrument created to breaking boundaries.
“Legislation by itself will never do away with all the fears, pride and selfishness which damage families and nations. To overcome such obstacles, we must rely on Human Solidarity and God’s Love” and begin to develop and/or advocate for support for quality human capital for quality leaders. LUCI is surely one way to that Human Solidarity and God’s love, advocating for:
- Marriage, Family Life and the manifold heritage,
- Sustainable National Unity Infrastructures and,
- The family as the unit of the Nation in God’s creation.
