Welcome to Gender And Development Action Online

GADA has often been a rallying point for mobilizing women's groups in Nigeria.

Over the last one decade, GADA has been in the forefront of the struggle for gender-equity and equality in politics and development in Nigeria. Our commitment has been to poorest and most marginalized constituencies, of which women comprise a disproportionately high segment. Over the years, the organization has developed cutting – edge expertise working with a wide range of local and international partners to implement actions around women’s social, economic, cultural and political rights.

GADA has become a catalyst for mobilizing women’s groups and their allies, linking their popular demands to policy making enclaves and negotiating for appropriate changes.


Gender and Development Action (GADA) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to gender equality and pursuit of sustainable development and social justice in Nigeria. Our work promotes greater understanding and proactive responses to gender and development issues through research, information documentation and dissemination, training, consultation, dialogue, advocacy and mobilization.
