OUR FOCUS

Environmental Awareness and Protection Campaign
We educate people on environmental protection, sanitation, health, renewable energy alternatives and resource management. We create awareness on environmental hazards, hostile environmental attitudes that degrade sustainable development and promote protective strategies that will combat environmental degradation for sustainable development.

Human Rights
We promote the advocacy and defence of Human rights. We protect the rights of vulnerable and the voiceless poor in the society whose rights have been violated, e.g. children, women and victims of injustice. We sensitize and adopt alternative disputes resolution strategies to assuage domestic violence and communal conflicts for peaceful co-existence.

Prison Intervention Services
We care and assist indigent detainees in custodies and awaiting trials inmates in prison and rehabilitate those discharged from prison. We intervene in rendering legal services to Prisoners; provide welfare like cloths, foot wears, basic drugs, educational materials and religious articles and literatures etc, for their on-going transformation. We pay particular attention to children who are born within the prison walls by providing maternal and early development facilities to the mother and child.

Women and Children Development
In line with our policy on being family friendly, we promote the dignity and rights of women and collaborate with women groups to advance the socio-economic contribution to the family. We promote and protect widows and orphans who have been disinherited of property succession because of customs and traditions, and left without any means of survival. We promote the rights and dignity of the child against sexual abuse and exploitation, child labor, hawking, children of broken families, street children and estranged from the family on account of armed conflict and war. We provide early childhood development opportunities for children whose parents have been affected by HIV/AIDs and disasters.

Youth Value Orientation
We advance the course of the youth by value orientation, educating and sensitizing them on the dangers of drugs, cultism and corruption in the society. We embark on sensitization workshop for economic empowerment, skill development, entrepreneurship and responsible reproductive health. We also assist the youth in career choices and mental health.
