The Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) is a Nigerian non-profit Foundation
established in 2010 with initial funding by Chevron Corporation to support a portfolio of socio-economic
development programs for Nigeria’s Niger Delta in order to improve standards of living of communities in
the region. PIND supports projects in collaboration with a diverse range of donor partners including
bilateral and multi-lateral aid agencies, federal and state government agencies in Nigeria, private
companies and foundations. With an overarching goal of increasing income and employment in the
region, the Foundation uses regional knowledge to understand the root causes of economic instability
and forge community owned, market-driven, sustainable results. Its activities fall under two distinct but
interrelated program areas:
o An economic development program focused on generating opportunities for pro-poor market
development and employment generation.
o A peace-building program that strengthens conflict resolution mechanisms for enabling
integrated peace and economic growth.
To place the synergies more clearly as part of the change logic, the two program areas are reinforced and
synergizes along different cross-cutting themes, including
o A capacity building intervention that will build the service delivery and engagement capacity of
government, private sector, civil society and communities.
o An advocacy initiative that improves influencing of policies, practices and programs that premise
on an in-depth analysis and understanding of systemic constraints to growth in the Niger Delta
o A communications effort that enhances PIND’s reputation via multiple and consistent messaging
of its transformative approaches, impacts and learning.
