Ogoni Women Sowing Seeds of Hope

The case study “Seeds of Hope” highlights how the Ogoni women are determined to return their land and rivers to the beautiful, pristine landscape it once was – before decades of oils spills contaminated their soil and water. It shows the results of the work led by Lokiaka Community Development Center through the eyes and stories of the women of Ogoni.

Lokiaka Community Development Center, through the support of Global Greengrants Fund, provided trainings to women in the community on how to establish fruit and indigenous tree nurseries, garden and medicinal plants, and to market seedlings to the many people across the community working to restore the land and environment after decades of devastation.
