About Imara Foundation
Founded in 2011 as a registered non profit, Imara Foundation chooses to make impact in the lives of women and children in Nigeria. Birthed out of the premise that women make up half of our world and therefore have a fundamental right to be allowed to take their place and contribute fully to matters concerning their socio-cultural and economic wellbeing, particularly if full progress towards nation building is to be achieved.
At Imara we recognize that enriching every woman involves empowering her holistically that is socially and economically taking into account her cultural context. We seek to elevate her from repressive cultural perspectives and rather promote her as an active partner for progress in her life. We are necessarily by extension interested in the promotion of the rights of her offspring the Nigerian Child a key actor in our eagerly anticipated tomorrow’s Nigeria. Imara also seeks to promote family life as we also understand that the family in whatever form it takes is the basic unit of society and the more vibrant families that are cultivated the better enriched our communities and ultimately our country.
Working actively to promote the Millennium Development Goals 2,3 & 8, being achievement of Universal primary education, Gender Equality and Empowerment and being a part of a global development partnership, Imara is a pan-Nigerian organization but we are also international in our outlook and our programmes aim to touch the lives of every woman and child within our reach wherever we can be of service.
