NIGER DELTA INITIATIVE

The Niger Delta Initiative of the Ovie Brume Foundation was established to address the region’s specific challenges with tailor made responses and interventions. Of particular note is the array of challenges facing the education sector in Delta state as well as access to youth development and empowerment opportunities. Infrastructural decay, poor knowledge of Information Communication Technology, absence of skills acquisition facilities, poor reading culture among staff and pupils has accounted for the poor educational standard of the state.

With the establishment of the Niger Delta Initiave, the Foundation seeks to develop strategies as well as initiatiate partnerships capable of improving the standard of education in the Niger Delta.
