Idea Builders Initiative (IBI) was established in 2003, which originally focused on women, agriculture, and rural community development. It is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission as incorporated Trustees. It is a Non-profit (NGO) dedicated to providing innovative leadership and entrepreneur development interventions targeted primary at women and girls.
In 2005, the organization re-launched its women programs to include a new focus on inspiring women to succeed first as individuals before other roles in society called ‘’Tomorrow’s Woman’’; this saw us moving closer to serve young people in secondary schools as in keeping with our first love-agriculture, we launched the ‘’SVGP’’ – a School Vegetative Gardening Project targeting public schools in our geo-political zones in Nigeria.
Further to this, in 2007, we began mainstream agriculture into environmental education and also launched two capacity building and micro enterprise support initiatives. I 2008 we began a process of consolidation by prioritizing women and girls as our core beneficiaries. Following this internal restructuring period, we began delivering programs through strengthened NGOs and CBOs partnership as a key delivering strategy.
