The Initiatives for Sustainable Peace & Entrepreneurship Development (ISPED) is a non – governmental organization committed to enthroning peaceful coexistence in Nigeria via Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Skills development of  youths, women and people with disabilities, who are champions of tomorrow’s development today in Nigeria and beyond.

The trend toward institutionalizing peace using various strategies has become a global phenomenon but ISPED intends to domesticate its strategies, reaching and making more meaning to its target audience – the youth, without overlooking the importance of women and other stakeholders and their contributions to the peace process and sustainable community development.

Strategically, we are imbued with and employ the Six C’s of organisational effectiveness to achieve success in all our activities which are Capacity, Competence, Capability, Culture, Creativity and Control.



ISPED’s vision is to foster peaceful coexistence, support leadership and entrepreneurial development for sustainable growth.


ISPED’s mission is to empower youths,women, people with disabilities and communities for positive transformational and societal change
