Our programmes are scheduled to be implemented across Nigeria, starting from the five (5) selected states within the South-East and South-South regions, with the headquarters in Awka, the Anambra State Capital. The pilot states are: Anambra State, Delta State, Enugu State, Imo State and Abia State. However, we are going to commence one state at a time, until our programmes are reasonably stabilized.

Our focus, at the moment, is on Anambra State (South Eastern Nigeria) and we are going to proceed in this order;
  1. The State Capital
  2. Major Cities (Urban and Semi-Urban Areas)
  3. Satellite towns
  4. Remote Villages

Our programmes are strongly built on Powerful Campaigns against some social factors militating against peaceful coexistence of people in our communities. At the root of these factor is Poverty and its associated social and economic practices which create structural violence and serve as bedrock of conflict generation, manifestation and escalation. 

Hence our campaign is aimed at both creating awareness on the existence and negative effects of these social practices, and charting a way to creating legally based solutions to some of these problems.
