The United Women Support for Development is a non–profit making organization registered in Nigeria as a Trust since 13th of January 2008. We are focusing on uplifting the standards and lives of women through conscious programmes of awareness, campaigns of various levels and a structured master plan for self developmental activities, skill training and information. We also assist and campaign to fund their children's primary health and education needs.
We are now consentrating on aiding the women in the Niger Delta where oil companies show little care for the communities despite the wealth in crude oil they obtain. In resent times there were violent clashes between militants and government forces causing loss of lives, property and immense oil spillages. Severe degradation of the environment has hampered livelihoods as fishing and farming communities. Women and children have been most affected by all of this as they have also lost their self-esteem and hope for the future.
