At Sustainability International, we focus on three main pillars: sustainability, conservation, and health
Distributed Community Monitoring
Our team is currently piloting a blockchain-based distributed accountability platform to create a trust economy for impact capital in the Niger Delta. The platform, Sela, is bringing together local community leaders, philanthropists, and institutional organizations (governments, foundations, corporations, NGOs, etc.) within a transparent framework enabled by a blockchain backbone.
Oil Pollution Cleanup with BIOCLEAN™ Biotechnology
We are providing clean biotechnology that biodegrades and restores the contaminated site, resulting in decontamination in less than 30 days with only one application needed. This solution restores life to contaminated water, soil, and vegetation. It is 100% organic and is non-toxic and non-pathogenic.
Virtual Reality Storytelling
We are taking action to spread awareness of the environmental disaster in Nigeria. With Al Jazeera and Contrast VR, we traveled to the Niger Delta to reveal the story of the people affected by oil pollution, through the eyes of a young female activist.
The Incubator School Project
The Incubator School is a diverse pilot academy where a collaborative approach to learning is taught with a focus on STEM and entrepreneurship. The class brainstormed with Sustainability International on innovative and creative solutions to clean up the oil spills and provide clean water to communities in the Niger Delta.
Podcast Series – "Transitions"
Chinyere Nnadi, Sustainability International's Chief Executive Officer, hosts engaging conversations with innovators who are showing us a way forward as we transition into this new sustainable world.
Public Health Awareness in the Niger Delta
According to the United Nations Environmental Programme, the human rights and environmental disaster in the Niger Delta affects over 30 million people. Families are drinking water heavily contaminated with oil- and the carcinogen benzene. Widespread comprehensive medical examinations and health monitoring is needed. Local communities need to be educated about the dangers of their poisoned ecosystem. For more information, click to watch our video on Youtube.
St. Catherine’s Girls Secondary School
The program focuses on girls’ education and healthcare for sustainable economic development. It targets indigent students in the community and provides them with scholarships and school supplies. The program also provides mentoring opportunities to the students, which allows for career guidance and emotional development. Through partnership with the community, dilapidating school buildings are renovated for comfortable learning environment.
The Grace Center
We empower indigent widows and single mothers, by providing resources, and job opportunities. The program provides hands-on training for skill acquisition and supports them with start-ups after successful completion of the training. The program also provides eye exams and other medical resources for their healthcare needs.
Infrastructure Development in Village Communities
Nkwerre, a small village in Nigeria, received a full design of potable water supply and distribution system through the philanthropic effort of Sustainability International. The latest technology in topographic surveying was deployed to develop a topographic map that was used to design potable drinking water with full distribution system.
