The Story Behind Our Movement

The Niger Delta region of Nigeria is characterized by under development. Although oil production in the region contribute to over 80 percent of Nigeria’s revenue, this does not translate to development in the region. While the region lament deliberate neglect by the federal government, political leaders have also not deployed revenues accrued to the region in transparent manner.  Oil exploration activities and poor leadership has led to high level of environmental degradation, poverty, lack of job opportunities, lack of basic social amenities,  leading to agitations, cultism, proliferation of drugs and small arms.

Our Campaign

We work with different stakeholder groups to eliminate socio-cultural and economic barriers that nurture gender inequality. We also mobilize critical mass of stakeholders, particularly youth and women to participate in the political process, and encourage behaviours that promote environmental protection and sustainability. We support women vulnerable groups to identify and access  alternative livelihood opportunities that would ultimately promote peace and security in the region.
