OneLife Initiative for Human Development is a not-for-profit organisation. The organisation's thematic interests include - micro-enterprise, governance, and new media deployment for development. OneLife is a non-political, non-governmental social enterprise based in Ibadan, Oyo State and with an operational base in Kaduna, Nigeria.
Youth apathy to governance evident in lack of thorough engagement with the system is the reason behind the emergence of OneLife Initiative. Our work is aimed at alleviating problems around the dearth of knowledge of governance activities. We also are interested in helping trigger policies that benefit young people and women especially around issues of reproductive health and Gender Based Violence. OneLife’s activities are more than mere responses to felt development needs; we are also compelled to intervene in the biting hardship caused by unemployment in Nigeria, especially among graduates and the non-skilled demography
The use of new media tools for development purposes also interests us as an organisation. We believe the growing pace of Information Communication and Technology for Development (ICT4D) cannot be ignored.
Young people are our major focus group. However, our projects are targeted at different clusters and individuals based on existing baseline surveys or those conducted by the organisation. We adopt participatory learning and action techniques in our engagements to ensure our programmes are owned by the people we reach.
At OneLife, our programmes are diffused to reach many who hitherto are inhibited from accessing information relating to government policies and micro-enterprise.
