In spite of the Oil wealth of the Niger Delta, the poverty and degradation that permeate the environment has continued to be of great concern to the people of the region. The misery of the poverty unfortunately, has been more pronounced on women, since they find it more difficult to lift themselves and their children out of poverty owing to pervasive gender induced socio-cultural, economic, political and legal restriction. Ironically, a lot of these women are the breadwinners of their families.
It is in the consciousness of the founder trustee of the foundation to contribute in her own little way in ameliorating the situation that she endowed the foundation Morgan Smart Development Foundation (MSDF) in 2003, named after late father Mr. Morgan Smart Urhobo.
The foundation have achieved modest success in implementing some of its set objectives. This has been inspite of the magnitude of challenges confronting the region and the paucity of funds that would have empowered the foundation to carry out projects and programs, that would impact on the people for sustainable development of the region.
