GRATIP is an organization pioneered by Aigbokhan President, a right activist who secured the voting rights for prisoners in Nigeria. In January 2014, GRATIP through its executive director represented CBO’s that were excluded from the list of beneficiaries of World Bank grant for HIV/AIDS Program Development Project (HPDP II). We filed an action under the FOIA with success. This case enlarged the number of the beneficiaries of the fund.
