Mahatma Gandhi once said: “poverty is the worst form of violence”. This is very true of Nigeria. Our political and economic leaders continue to inflict violence on millions of Nigerians. This violence is being done by rich Nigerians to the poor by the systematic exclusion of the poor from the political and economic life of our country. No one hardly wins a ticket at the primaries of political parties without it being given to the individual as concession from the stakeholders in that party. This goes all the way from local government council elections to the presidency.
The aim of this intervention is to build a Centre where annually 50 – 100 unskilled, economically, socially marginalized, unemployed women and girls will receive life skills development as sustainable Poverty Graduation Program and Early Child Care will be provided especially to vulnerable children.
