This strategy is in connection with the recent crises that has affected more than 3.5 million people. CCEPI from 2001-2013 served more than 17,000 victims of violent conflict and Internal displacement, widows in Plateau, Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States people by providing immediate needs such as foodstuffs, zinc for roofing, organizing workshops, sustainable skills etc to widows, orphans and youth. CCEPI, in her emphasis on  peace intervention, was one of the organizations who organize women to ask their people in general and husbands in particular to stop participating in violence and taking up arms in Yelwa Shedam. Eventually it was stopped. CCEPI helped in organizing peace clubs among Christians and Muslim people in Primary and Secondary Schools. CCEPI initiated building relationships, dialogue among Christians and Muslims to promote peaceful co-existence. CCEPI has worked to ensure that MVP are protected against any form of abuse, violence, exploitation, neglect and discrimination. This action will make sure that MVP are socially accepted, loved and have access to essential services and basic rights. CCEPI collaborated with the National Population Commission (NPC) registered and received Birth Certificates for many MVP. Similarly, CCEPI provided legal support to some girls who were raped and were into marriages forced against their will. CCEPI defended and referred an MVP whose ears were cut, the perpetrators were punished by the law and medical attention was immediately given to the victims.

Our Success Story

One impressive success recorded during one of our project was the initiative by some community volunteers and carers’ forum members of EYN Church, Gulak of Madagali local government area of Adamawa state. They saw the need to take the care and support for OVC beyond support from donor especially foreign donor and so they organized fund raising programme on 12th June 2012 within the church for OVC programme.
