The Ken Saro-Wiwa Foundation was founded in 2009 with its mission to foster environmental sustainability by supporting a climate in which the management of natural resources, technological advancements, investment decisions and socio-economic development all work in harmony, fulfilling the needs and aspirations of the people of the Niger Delta and its environs. The foundation’s programmes will emphasize empowering women through education, reproductive health rights, increased participation in peace building, and political representation at all levels of decision-making.
