Al-Ummah Development foundation seeks immediate socio-economic changes in Northern Nigeria through moral reform and progress in agriculture and technical expertise. Its intervention programs are designed to mitigate further decline and offer practical solutions that accelerates a positive revival in Northern Nigeria.
Northern Nigeria is faced with extreme challenges in almost all aspects of human and social development. It has been classified as underdeveloped and at the lowest rung of human development indices. Illiteracy, drug abuse, ethno religious crises and extreme poverty are waging a daily battle of destruction at the core of the Muslim society At the tip of the iceberg is poverty and illiteracy against which little has been done and which is depriving millions of youth the opportunity to evolve as future leaders and builders of their society.
“Nineteen states of Northern Nigeria have the highest level of poverty in Nigeria, highest infant mortality rate, highest number of unemployed people and lowest rate of child enrolment in schools with Lagos state producing more WAEC candidates than the entire North-East and North West geopolitical zones combined.”
Vice Pres. Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo
Furthermore, corruption, poor governance and lack of foresight on the part of many leaders have compounded the problems of Northern Nigeria by destroying the economy and preventing growth which minimized employment potential and rendered even the most competent youths jobless and without the means to become self-employed. Needless to say an urgent move is necessary to stem the frightening tide of misfortunes and safeguard the corporate future of Northern Nigeria.
