Fostering democracy and upholding human rights, taking action to prevent the destruction of the global ecosystem, advancing equality between women and men, securing peace through con­ flict prevention in crisis zones, and defending the freedom of individuals against excessive state and economic power – these are the objectives that drive the ideas and actions of the Heinrich Böll Foundation. We maintain close ties to the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens) and as a think tank for green visions and projects, we are part of an international net­work encompassing well over 100 partner projects in approxi­mately 60 countries.

The Heinrich Böll Foundation works independently and nurtures a spirit of intellectual openness. We maintain a world­ wide network with currently 30 international offices. We co­operate closely with 16 state-level Böll Foundations in each of Germany’s federal states, and we support talented, socio-politi­cally engaged undergraduate and graduate students in Germany and abroad.

Orile Iganmu Progressive Association (OIPA) is a Community Development Association (CDA) located in Orile Iganmu. Orile Iganmu is an impoverished community of over 800,000 people located in the heart of Lagos.

OIPA’s main activity is in providing ICT literacy courses for teenagers with insufficient education and qualifications to find work. The courses specialise in Web Design to give its graduates practical and specific skills that can provide them with opportunity for employment in a city in which the online economy is growing rapidly.  Information and community technology must play a vital role in development. Allowing these communities the access and skills to gain from these technologies is a great tool for empowerment.

OIPA have recently started a computer engineering course alongside their web design course.  Green Cycle will support and expand this venture to allow more opportunity for young people to come and gain practical skills in the safe handling of used electronics and e-waste.
