Our Projects

DeltaWomen aims to empower the indigenous women of the Delta State-socially, economically and politically- through integrated outreach programs to support their basic human rights and to ensure their rightful place in society. DeltaWomen believes that an empowered woman greatly benefits her family, community and society at large. Her family is healthier and better fed, her savings and investments increase, and her children are more likely to be educated. DeltaWomen projects include:

Sexual Harassment and War against Women Violence

DeltaWomen aims to significantly curb violence against women including sexual harassment and abuse by raising awareness, opening communication channels between people, government and public institutions; and providing support networks for women who have been victims of violence and abuse.
DeltaWomen recently launched a sexual harassment campaign targeting many educational institutions and it is currently doing government lobbying to help put effective mechanisms and policies in place for dealing with sexual harassment issues.
