Summary Description of your Organization
The Community Initiative for Sustainable Development started as an informal Gender sensitive support organization for people in crisis in 2003. It metamorphosed into an NGO in 2008 when it was formally registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria as a non-profit and Non-Governmental Organization. Community Initiative For Sustainable Development (COIN), is an indigenous Non-Governmental Organization saddled with a primary focus of equipping community members (women and men) with the social and economic skills needed to survive and compete favorably in a vastly changing and urbanizing sub-Saharan Africa. Our head-office is located in Bukuru, Jos-South LGA of Plateau State in Central Nigeria with collaborating offices in, Adamawa, Cross-River, Delta, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger States of Nigeria.
Since inception in 2003 as a support outfit assisting needy community members especially youths that are unemployed as well as those affected by HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and other neglected Tropical Diseases, Community Initiative for Sustainable Development (COIN) has become a viable platform for many under-privileged (women and men) to learn about survival.
We also seek to provide a set of financial services and tools to strengthen the skills of Youths and other community members improve their income and health thus minimizing anti-social activities which may further improve living standards through re-orientation of the community towards community-based development.
