SpringAid International Development is a non-profit organization founded by Dr Chikezie Onuoha in 2009 with the aim to fighting poverty in all its forms through strengthening the capacity of individuals, especially women and youths within the communities to respond to their identified basics needs. SpringAidIntlD works closely with communities to design and implement projects for their development. Our core programme includes promotion of education for children, youth leadership, gender equality, human rights advocacy, legal aid, democracy, health promotion and social entrepreneurship. Vision: A society where human dignity and equality of all people on the globe are acknowledged and respected. Mission: To contribute in creating a just world through fighting poverty in all its forms, encouraging community development. Approach: We adopt an integrated right perspective to all our activities. We believe in participatory projects. We work with communities not work for them. Therefore our method is to encourage community ownership of the projects we embark on. Core values: Our core values include transparency, teamwork, accountability, respect for individual persons and common good. Through our engagement in these areas we contribute to sustainable development projects that address the root causes of poverty, helping the most marginalized and underprivileged people and communities break the bark of poverty that is the major scourge of most people in the communities we serve. It is our conviction that the injustice of poverty demands a powerful and practical response to address both its causes and its impact on peoples’ lives.
