Overview of CPPLI

Child Protection and Peer Learning Initiative (CPPLI) is a human-centered social development not-for-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian National Non-Governmental Organization (NNGO) that was established and registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in June 2010 with the sole aim of ensuring that less privilege and vulnerable children (particularly girls) and women as well as populations affected by humanitarian emergencies have access and attain a quality life and education through building sustainable partnership with government agencies, UN-agencies, communities, individuals and other stakeholders in obtaining mechanisms and resources to achieve its aim and focus. The organization thematically focuses on Protection, Health, Nutrition, Education, and Governance. Being a national and local organization, CPPLI is geographically operating in Northeast Nigeria with tremendous technical expertise in working in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe (BAY) states due to its well understanding of the cultural dynamics and change in the context of the communities in the BAY states.

The project theory of change (ToC) aims to strengthen prevention and response to child protection risks through a community-led approach.
