The mission of Organizing For Opportunities is to create and advocate for opportunities and facilitate the use of such opportunities by all Nigerians, in economic and commercial activities, education and workforce development, civic engagement and public service, and the elimination of all religion-based and ethnicity-based discrimination
The vision of Organizing for Opportunities is to ensure a society in which all citizens have access to opportunities in all legitimate sectors of the society and are adequately prepared to take advantage of those opportunities.
This annual event brings politicians and scholars from different perspectives, as well as ordinary citizens, to discuss the concept of progressive politics in the Nigerian context and to proffer ideas on how to advance progressivism.
(Starting with one at Lorji): We believe the villages and rural areas deserve similar amenities as are found in the cities and urban areas. As such, we are committed to collaborating with communities to build community centers for lifelong learning, recreation, and gathering. The first of such centers is being built at Lorji, in Aboh Mbaise LGA of Imo State, Nigeria.
In our communities, the marketplaces are not just for commerce. The marketplaces are also spiritual, religious, and political gathering joints. As such, we will work with communities to rebuild and refurbish marketplaces to become modern, clean, and easily accessible.
Clean environments contributes to the health and wellness of communities. Through our environmental projects, we organize communities to protect and preserve their natural environments and keep them clean.
The emergence of the leaders of tomorrow cannot be left to accidents. By design, we aim to instill state-of-the-art best practices in leadership for the youth. We train them for peaceful protests and activism for community and national change, as well as in the practice of conflict resolution.
It is not enough to acquire skills; it is important to provide young people with opportunities to use those skills in community building and providing incomes to support themselves and their families.
The management of money is an acquired skill. In collaboration with financial institutions, we provide seminars in financial literacy. We also provide micro-financing for entrepreneurial and educational pursuits for young people in particular.
The more people are literate, the more access to information and better decision making they will have. Through this project, reading and writings skills in both English and Nigeria languages are encouraged..
