Motto

Taking the Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law Advocacy to the Grassroots for direct impact and betterment of their lives.

Our Values

Transparency:

At Intersciety Nigeria, transparency remains one of our core guiding principles. Defining an NGO without transparency is an incomplete definition. To retain public confidence in our activities, we must be transparent at all times.

Accountability:

We totally lack moral competence to demand accountability from governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental bodies if we are not accountable to ourselves and the public. Accountability remains one of our guiding principles at all times.

Integrity & Standards:

A competent NGO is a nimble and an unbiased evaluator of the social activities of government institutions, inter-government institutions, social enterprises, business enterprises and members

of the civil populace. And as such, an NGO must have integrity and unbiased standards of social evaluation. At Intersociety, this core value is entrenched.

Capacity Building:

Capacity Building: But for capacity building, Intersociety would not have existed. Our founder (Emeka Umeagbalasi) benefited immensely from capacity building resources offered by the CLO and the Human Rights Watch. His journey to seminal citadel dates back to 1989 when he wrote his first letter to VOA and was given a copy of the American History. Then he was a pauper, who went into nine and a half years trade apprenticeship with First School Leaving Certificate. Today, he has successfully completed his bachelor’s degree in prestigious Criminology & Security Studies at NOUN. He is also an alumnus of the US State Department’s International Visitor’s Leadership Program on” NGO Management in USA”-Class of June 2013. Capacity Building is a next door neighbor to creativity and one of our core values at Intersociety. It is designed for our board, executive and volunteer members as well as members of the public.

Creativity:

Creativity rules the world after God, not persons. An NGO lacking creative resources is not worthy of being one. At Intersociety, creativity gave birth to her. We offer maximum opportunities for creativity and assembling and grooming of creative societal leaders and reformers of today and tomorrow.

Public Impact:

The original idea behind the invention of “NGO” after the Second World War was to touch the lives of the people in a manner far better than their previous conditions-positive impact. For records, the first international NGO was Anti-Slavery International, formed in 1839. As our Motto-“Taking the Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law Campaigns to the Grassroots” indicates, public impact remains our activities’ corner-stone.

Mission

Our mission is to raise the consciousness of the citizens and the governing authorities within Nigeria and beyond on the need to promote and sustain at all times civil liberties and rule of law laid on democracy & good governance and security & safety.  We hold a strong vision that to get a civil liberties & rule of law compliant society, there must be democracy & good governance and security and safety. Our mission is to advocate for the institutionalization of these three pillars in Nigeria or any part thereof as well as beyond the boundaries of Nigeria, using research, report, documentation and other mass advocacy toolkit. 

Vision

We envision the emergence of Nigeria as Africa’s freer country; a kind of Africa’s melting pot where every citizen is free to live habitably and comfortably within the boundaries of civilized laws irrespective of his or her socio- economic status or ethnic, racial, gender and religious origins.  A Nigeria that offers permanent fertile ground for citizen productivity and creativity with a narrow gap of 95% over 100% between the haves and the have-not is our Nigerian vision. We also envision African Continent freed from wars, political slavery, dictatorship, poverty and corruption.
