Our Team
Our mission is to establish and encourage innovative multi-stakeholder partnerships that support programs and activities, which empower communities to achieve a peaceful and enabling environment for equitable economic growth in the Niger Delta.

We take a fresh approach to creating positive socio-economic change in the Niger Delta. By convening local communities and international donors alike we identify and amplify solutions that reflect a shared vision of how to increase prosperity and security in the region. 

Headquartered in Washington, NDPI funds social investment programs in the Niger Delta through its partnership with the Nigeria-based Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND).  NDPI focuses on strategic planning and project funding while PIND designs projects and oversees day-to-day project implementation. 
Chevron has launched an unprecedented experiment, which empowers economic entrepreneurs and peace advocates. By working to improve livelihoods and striving for greater harmony in their diverse communities, Nigerian citizens are building a safer and more prosperous living space while fostering a better business climate.
