About My Business:


GEN Grassroots Empowerment Network) is a private tax exempt, non-profit, non-governmental organisation which coordinates the activities of local community based NGOs, youth groups, community based organisations (CBO’s), co-operatives, community based enterprises (CBE’s), women and other vulnerable groups and individuals in Nigeria, particularly Akwa Ibom State and surrounding Niger Delta communities to strengthen and improve their capabilities in promoting self-reliance and participation in development. This is done with the primary purpose of empowering women and children, including gender-based violence, child labour and trafficking survivors, and other disadvantaged groups to act on their own behalf. The role of GEN is that of a partner co-operating with local groups/communities by providing them with the necessary support within which their organisations/communities can be developed. All our projects have a strategy aimed at mainstreaming gender and environmental concerns. A strategy is also adopted to limit the effect of hazardous child labour and HIV/AIDS in communities in which we work. Under this programme, GEN seeks to: - Understand the ideologies, philosophies and working methods of the NGOs/ CBOs. - Undertake a wide range of short-term training aimed at extending specific knowledge, skills and techniques to various categories of development staff. - Provide on the job technical assistance to NGOs/ CBOs with a view to producing competent personnel to carry out specific tasks that will contribute to the development of the communities. - Negotiate with the relevant authorities and agencies on behalf of the NGOs/CBOs with the purpose of furthering and defending their interest. - Carry out direct execution of whole or part projects on behalf of government agencies, donor community and international organisations in Nigeria, assisting clients or collaborating with other NGOs as the case may be in areas of rural and community development, rural water supply and sanitation, environmental education, nutrition and women economic development issues, human trafficking, child labour and HIV/AIDS-related health programmes.
