Organizational Philosophy

We do not develop Communities; rather we facilitate communities to make their decisions regarding the direction they choose to follow in charting their own destinies. We believe that without strengthening the capacity of existing community structures to be able to receive, manage and take ownership of development process, community development projects will continue to lack sustainability. However, the people, and the institutions are our priority concern. Therefore, DICI pursues, bottom-up, community-based, people centered development approaches.

Value Addition

DICI is committed to the principles of value addition. While intervening, we ensure value for money. We bring our expertise to bear on the work we do.

• Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND)

• Society for Family Health (SFH)

• West Africa Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP)

• Action Aid Nigeria/Environmental and Rural Mediation Centre

• Peace and Community Empowerment Initiative
