When was our organization formed?
Who started the organization and why?
NDWPD was founded by Amb. Caroline Usikpedo Omoniye and a group of women in Lagos. Touched by the high rate of poverty level of women in the Niger Delta and her vision for Women’s Rights, Empowerment and Peacemaking using training and capacity building as development tools, she called on women from all states of the Niger Delta to join hands in the pursuit of Emancipation of the rural women.
In which region(s) does our organization work? NDWPD works at selected rural areas in the Niger Delta Region (nine states), Nigeria and in Collaboration with Partner organizations in Africa Region and International Space. Working towards women’s Rights, Gender Equality, economic empowerment, capacity building and Sustainable development.
After 15 Years of our existence as PART OF THE women’s movement, we are transitioning from a “Women’s Association” into a full LEGAL Institution and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
The Niger Delta Women’s Movement for Peace and Development (NDWPD) will now be known and called THE NOBLE DELTA WOMEN FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT INTERNATIONAL (NDWPD INT’L).
NDWPD was founded by Amb. Caroline Usikpedo and a group of women in Lagos.
A NEW CHILD WAS BORN!!!!!!
The Niger Delta Women’s movement for Peace and Hope (NDWPH) started at the slums at a friend’s backyard in Ajegunle in Lagos, Nigeria.
REMEMBERING KEEPS Our memory ALIVE OF the day we held the first meeting and the rain fell, Ajegunle flooded and how we held our shoes at IN our hands and SWAM out of the black dirty water.
IT WAS Then we said, “We will do it”.
We looked at moving beyond and moving from Hope to Development, and the Women’s movement changed its name to the Niger Delta Women’s movement for Peace and Development (NDWPD) in 2007.
