The Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND Foundation) is a Nigerian non-profit organization established in 2010 to promote peace and equitable economic growth in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region by forging multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder partnerships at the regional, national and international levels.

PIND works closely with numerous partners to implement collaborative market-based community-owned programs to mitigate conflicts and boost economic opportunities for local businesses, ensuring that economic progress occurs in a systemic, inclusive and sustainable manner. 

Together with partners, the Foundation is helping to break the cycle of poverty and conflict by creating strong and stable communities in all the nine States within the region: Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Imo, Ondo and Rivers, with special focus on the underserved and hard to reach coastal communities in the region that are most forgotten in development programming.
