Flood in Lagos

Helping flood victims

We have experienced flooding on so many levels in the past years, but this one is the mother of all floods. About 13 States including, Anambra, kogi, Bayelsa, Benue, Rivers, Delta, Adamawa, Niger, Kaduna, Nasarawa, Jigawa etc have been severely affected the by flooding.

Live for Africa

The reduction of poverty is the most difficult challenge facing any country in the developing world where on the average, majority of the population is considered poor.

We are building a world with no limits

We believe everyone deserves the chance to reach their full potential and we are committed to tearing down the barriers stopping them.

What We Do

We collaborate with our partners and work to eradicate poverty, hunger, inequality and amplify the voice of the underrepresented.

While Nigeria, may no longer be the world poverty capital, over 70 million people currently live in extreme poverty, the highest in Africa. This figure represents 33 per cent of the country’s population according to world poverty clock

Every year since 2008, the world has become less peaceful. Insecurity has risen in the scale and frequency in Nigeria. The number of war causalities, vulnerable people, displaced, at risk or in need of assistance.

Closing gender inequality gaps is very important in ending poverty. Societies where girls and women are repressed are among the most backward.

I have never used a sanitary pad before because we can’t afford it and I don’t even know how to use it

Sarah

I never knew there was anything like a sanitary pad to date. I have never used it before. What my mother taught me to use was rags because that’s what she also uses during her period

 

Blessing

Onyinye

I didn’t know what was happening to me, I saw blood all over my body and cloth. I ran to my sister and told her, she said is menstruation, that I should not do anything, and I should use water and continue washing off the blood. Later she gave me a tissue to put in my pant.

A girl-centered initiative that aims to eradicate period poverty and meet the menstrual hygiene needs of teenage girls.

Our Beliefs

01

Women and girls are often met with gross inequalities with fewer opportunities, and tools to lift themselves out of poverty compared to their male counterparts. Yet, they have the potential to improve the lives of their families and community. We believe a world without limits will not be possible if this half of the community are left behind.

02

 We use local technologies and resources within our reach to design solutions. Utilizing local community manpower also ensures full inclusion and participation, and sustainability and this has been at the core of the success of our projects.

03

We know our resources are limited but when we draw from our collective intelligence, the synergy in togetherness, the power of the multi-sectorial approach, and industry-wide collaboration, cooperation, and consensus, our individual limitations are swallowed up and we can achieve just about anything. This is why we hold everyone accountable for empowering others and creating social impact. We are talking about the government, corporate organizations, international NGOs, and even as much as small church groups or other local assemblies. If we are all moving in the same direction, success naturally follows

Our Project
Respond to Crisis and Reach the underserved

Every year since 2008, the world has become less peaceful. Insecurity has risen in the scale and frequency in Nigeria. The number of war causalities, vulnerable people, displaced, at risk or in need of assistance. We respond to emergencies by providing relief materials, food, clean cloths, dugs, water and first aid materials with women, children and the disabled persons as priorities.

Our Project
I STAND WITH THE GIRLS CAMPAIGN

We know our resources are limited but when we draw from our collective intelligence, the synergy in togetherness, and the power of collaborative effort, we can change the world. One person at a time.
