The organization 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.
