INTERVENTION AND OUTREACH ACTIVITIES

In this context intervention programmes that benefit largely deprived rural communities and other disadvantaged people carried out include:

  • Intervention projects on local participation in development planning;
  • Intervention projects on poverty reduction at the local level particularly in rural communities;
  • Intervention projects on promoting good governance at the grassroots level to hold elected representatives accountable to the people that elect them;
  • Intervention projects on promoting poverty reduction in the Niger Delta region with specific reference to environment, services delivery and good governance;
  • Intervention projects on conflict resolution and peace building in the Niger Delta region;
  • Intervention projects on promoting participation in education at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels by grassroots population, especially on women enrolment;
  • Intervention projects on promoting improved health care delivery to disadvantaged goups, especially in the rural communities across Nigeria; and
  • Intervention projects on control of the spread of HIV/AIDS as well as the care and support of those affected.
