Local Communities Development Initiative
Local Communities Development Initiative (LoC-Din) is a registered nonprofit, Non-Government and independent development cum humanitarian organization committed to saving lives, alleviating human sufferings, improve living conditions and bringing sustainable development to marginalized and at-risk communities in Nigeria.
LoC-Din envisions a situation where all local communities in Nigeria are independent and self-sustaining, having adequate access to basic needs that guarantee good life, and prospering under an environmentally sustainable condition.
Our Mission is to fight extreme poverty, alleviate sufferings and bring sustainable development to marginalized, poor and vulnerable communities in Nigeria through volunteering, advocacies and effective partnership.
Promoting socioeconomic development and livelihood opportunities for rural communities through entrepreneurship development, capacity building, sporting activities, arts and culture.
LoC-Din existed since 2016 as a movement of likes-mind advocating for quality education, improved healthcare services and social security for marginalized communities in Nigeria.
The organization was incorporated as a TRUST with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on 27th July 2018. Since then, the scope of LoC-Din’s interventions has expanded to providing management supports to displaced populations and communities in Nigeria, provision of relief materials and emergency kits to people affected by natural disasters and armed conflicts, mobilizing communities for socioeconomic and livelihood engagements with protection mainstreaming while focusing on peace building and social cohesion in conflict affected communities.
Today, LoC-Din in partnership with UN agencies, International and National humanitarian organizations and donors has impacted in over 100,000 Households and more than 600,000 individuals affected by armed conflict in Northeast Nigeria through multisectorial humanitarian interventions. We are committed to doing even more.
Our thematic areas are; Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM), Shelter and NFIs, Education, WASH, protection, Nutrition, livelihood, conflict resolution and peace building, gender and disability inclusion, amongst others.
