About Us

IDEE was founded in Ogun State of Nigeria in 1999 as a social association and finally metamorphosed into a non-for profit and Non-Governmental Organization. The organization worked on several projects within the state expanding its scope across many Local Government Areas and other states. The organization was established with a keen desire to reduce poverty through sustainable development and assist rural families to improve the quality of health and life. IDEE envisions a society free of poverty with equitable distribution of resources and where every child has access to qualitative education and other opportunities of life.
