MISSION AND VISSION
The mission of the organization is providing developmental assistance to women and youths at the grassroots. To completely alleviate or eradicate poverty among rural women and youths and thereby building solidarity for development. OLADEC stands on a tripod: love, unity and women development, and progress for the family. The ultimate goal is better living standard for the poor women and the youths at the grassroots. We aim to touch lives of the poorest women and youth in all villages in Akwa Ibom State and within Nigeria in particular, Africa and the world in general. The emphasis on women and youths is not only because they are highly vulnerable but also because it is generally accepted that “to train a man is training an individual, whereas to train a woman is training generation”. Training of the youth is insurance for tomorrow as the future of our land belongs to them; and this is shaped today.
Oladec operates a sound administrative and organizational structure. In a descending order.
