About Us?

Ishiba Development and Multipurpose Centre is an NGO charged with the mandate of combating poverty, hunger and social injustice.

 Founded in 2006 by Dr Evangelist Elizabeth N. Praise but duly registered under the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on the 25th of august 2016, the Ishiba strategy is to create a community of members trained and equipped on the important aspects of life like godliness, health, agriculture and entrepreneurship. The aim is to push hunger and unhealthy lifestyles out of the lives of members, thereby encroaching the borderlines of poverty in Nigeria - just one empowered member after another. Therefore Ishiba runs online and offline registration platforms and also organizes seminars and workshops across the 36 states of the country for members. The themes of these events boarders on the word of God, health, agriculture and entrepreneurship. The money recovered from membership goes back to empowering widows and the less privilege with economic materials and equipment and non-refundable soft loans otherwise known as grants, in this respect, over 50 million naira has been spent. However, members who applied to undertake major projects in the tone of N100, 000 to N10, 000, 000, await the arrival of grants promised Ishiba by recognized international bodies.

As part of her aim to achieve an independent funding system in the future, not needing to depend on other charities for funds, Ishiba is investing in local manufacturing, agriculture, the health sector and other businesses. This is to build a financial base for herself, to be able to empower members independently. In line with this very vision, Ishiba currently runs a farm of over 600 hectares, planting groundnut, corn, plantain and banana, with prospects of expansion. She is also building a state of the art medical facility in Nsukka, which promises to be among the leading medical institutions in the treatment of chronic diseases in the country. Ishiba is also partnering a Chinese mobile phone manufacturing company to be able to produce and distribute Ishiba branded phones in Nigeria.

The Ishiba project is a huge one, many more lives promises to be touched through the employment opportunities that will result as well as the different empowerment initiatives currently being undertaken by Ishiba. Therefore we enjoin you to become a part of this great force against hunger and poverty.

Our Vision

To be a leading NGO and a forerunner in the business of making humanitarian gestures available to the grassroots people.

We want to, by 2020, have trained over 50,000,000 people in different skills, as well as set many up in various trades with particular interest in agriculture. We want our microfinance program to have reached the most micro of places with a target of 10,000 micro-finances all over the country by 2020.

Our Mission

Our mission is to continue to partner with the people at the local level, and spread the tentacles of this partnership, so as to be able to bring development, both community and individual to all.

Our mode of operation

It is an established fact that most times than not, funds approved by international charity bodies and persons to Africa end up not getting to the grassroots; the place to which they are targeted. So it is our vision that we help correct this abnormality.

To achieve this, we have adopted our unique organizational structure that ensures funds gets down to the very people they are meant for. In respect to this, our membership is open. Anybody from any place or community can be a member.

We also operate a networking model of structure; that is to say a structure that doesn’t allow for dormant membership, but a membership that strives for upward-ness. This kind of organization ensures that ordinary members can move to being integral parts of the organization by registering other members and having them as reproductive down-liners; that is to say members that will register other members. This helps to spread our network as well as our impact to the remotest parts. In the nearest years, we would have spread to the craniest corners of this nation


So far, ISHIBA enjoys a partner-membership of over 2000 people. That is to say, over a thousand people are registered on the platform with the same charge and passion as the central purpose of ISHIBA.

We have presence in over 35 states in Nigeria with Abuja, bringing the total to 36. And over 300 communities are host to our microfinance/corporative initiatives or at least one of our so many agricultural and skill acquisition programs.
