The Leadership Initiative for Transformation and Empowerment (LITE-Africa), formerly known as the Niger Delta Professionals for Development (NIDPRODEV),is a Nigerian non-governmental organization (NGO) operating in the Niger Delta since 1999. Its current programs focus on three thematic areas: Governance & Human Rights, Sustainable Livelihoods & Health, and Humanitarian Support Services.Specifically, our projects include marginalized groups such as women, young people and People with Disability (PWD)
Humanitarian Support Services and Health
LITE-Africa has worked in collaboration with other organizations in times of emergency situations to help the most vulnerable such as internally displaced persons due to military attacks in their communities and natural disasters.
GOOD GOVERNANCE AND HUMAN RIGHTS
At LITE-Africa, we believe that good governance is a key component of a democracy and poverty reduction. A well functional public sector that adheres to the tenets of transparency, accountability and inclusive participation of the citizens
Sustainable Livelihoods and Health
LITE-Africa’s approach is to work with local communities to develop market driven business development services that support growth, enhance effectiveness and create a multiplier effect for job creation and income generation..
