Who We Are

OCDI is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-political organization that provides social services such as counseling, psychosocial support, empowerment, legal aid, welfare support and skill acquisition to women, girls and youths in Nigeria.

To see a society where women, girls and youths are able to cope with all challenges of life and live in dignity.

We promote the rights and empowerment of women, girls and youths through partnership and capacity building to enable social justice and help them live in a world free from poverty and diseases.

The organization was started by the CEO and her friends when she was asked to take up leadership responsibilities in Kwara State Polytechnic as the director of socials and the only female amongst all the executives. She realized the hassles young girls just getting into school face from older boys. She realized the girls lacks skills to resist sexual pressure, they are non-assertive and lack refusal skills. Female students also felt she must be someone so special and possess extra powers to be the only female in a male dominated environment. Sensitization and awareness program for girls in the school was carried out to address the issue.
