We, the descendants of Yoruba living in the state of Alabama, USA hereby come together and form this Non-profit organization for the benefit of mankind and for the promotion of Yoruba culture, values, and language, among the people of our immediate community and the world in general.

At Yodaai, we seek to help people in our community to grow culturally, intellectually, and economically, using the rich cultural heritage of the Yorubas, particularly in areas of child upbringing, family foundation, communal service and personal values. We seek to create a community of productive and fully participating citizenry.
