Shedrack Agediga Foundation
Our Vision is to see a stable and peaceful Niger Delta that supports good governance and development in the region.
At the wake of the hostilities in the Niger Delta and the subsequent creation of the Amnesty programme by the Federal Government of Nigeria, Comrade Shedrack Agediga (Chairman) was part of the team that trained the militants and was also involved in the process of peace restoration in the region.
Driven by his passion for sustainable peace and as a way of contributing his own quota to the restoration of peace in the Niger Delta, he formed the Shedrack Agediga Foundation. The name was chosen as a way to create a brand that was widely known during the Amnesty period and had even become a household name in the Peace Building Process in the Niger Delta.
Since its creation, the Foundation has been part of various Peace keeping missions in the Niger Delta and Nigeria as a whole and has trained over 200 youths on Conflict Management in oil producing communities which are highly prune to conflict.
