Pupils empowered for education at Arhavwarien

We aim at achieving our aims and objectives through project implementation in three thematic areas, which are:  Education and Empowerment, Environment and Sustainability, and Cultural Heritage Development and Revitalization. 

Education and Empowerment

We implement projects of economic development to indigenous peoples through formal and informal educational services and empowerment programmes. We especially focus on children and how the girl child can be seen as a self-reliant being beyond the traditional roles of house keeper and reproductive being.

We are currently working on this website to upgrade it. Therefore, detailed information about our educational services, which are carried out by our Educational arm, Senator Ewherido Memorial Fund can be found at

Environment and Sustainable Development

We understand that plants, animals and human souls do relate to each other and to their environment, and that their relationship sustains the Fertility, Wealth, Peace and Well-being of our World. Therefore, we seek to establish projects that sustain that relationship. We work with farmers and other indigenous people in agrarian communities to sustain the longevity of the ecosystem as well as sustain their livelihoods. Details of our works on the environment can be found under our Projects page.

Cultural Heritage Development and Revitalization

The Cultural Heritage Development and Revitalization work is under the South-Western Edoid Multicultural Institute. The Cultures and Languages of many indigenous peoples are fast becoming endangered and many are even dying. We seek to document, revitalize and preserve them for a more balanced world, knowing their economic benefits, socio-cultural significantce and medicinal powers. Our staff include linguists, folklorists and a team of indigenous consultants who work to ensure the success of our cultural preservation projects.
