Formerly known as the Niger Delta Project for
Environment, Human Rights, and Development
(NDPEHRD), the Center for Environment, Human
Rights and Development (CEHRD) is a
rural-based and rural-focused non-profit
organisation founded on August 15, 1999 by
conservationists, environmentalists, activists,
and health workers in the Niger Delta region of
Nigeria. CEHRD was formed to respond to the
environmental, human rights, rural health, and
underdevelopment problems plaguing the Niger

Our goal is to serve as a bridge between the rural
communities of Nigeria and their rights by
empowering them through education and
CEHRD's Mission, as well as its Structure, is built upon its
