What We Do

1). Health Programmes
Healthy Families, Healthy Communities
Our community-centered health programmes are critical to lifting families out of poverty.
We believe gender equality is fundamental in achieving rights and dignity for all, including people living with HIV and their families and loved ones. Women and girls tend to be more vulnerable to the structural issues that increase their risk of acquiring HIV, including violence against children, child marriage, educational and employment disparities and commercial sex work. Poorer women in most societies, especially those living with HIV, face combined burdens from discriminatory practices and policies in obtaining education and employment, in accessing livelihoods, assets and information and basic civil participation. That is why our HIV/AIDS prevention activities are tailored towards Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT), Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC).

We believe every child should have access to quality health and education. We facilitate the health, right and education of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC)  by providing access to quality health, education and nutrition
Malaria, Tuberculosis and other Communicable diseases continue to be among the most serious public health problems in Nigeria and threat globally. PGF is deeply involved in the prevention, control or elimination of these diseases through our advocacy and sensitization activities at rural and grassroots levels in Osun State. Our service delivery has enabled us to work in over 200 communities in the state and looking beyond extending our horizons further to more communities.
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) programmes of PGF encompass diseases that occur solely in tropical regions of Nigeria, of which Osun State is one. The diseases are often termed ‘neglected’ as the people who are most affected are the poorest populations living in rural areas within the state. These diseases cause immense human suffering and death. They pose a devastating obstacle to health and remain a serious impediment to poverty reduction and socioeconomic development. We deliver interventions at the grassroots through appropriate advocacy and prevention strategies at sustainable cost and with the help of our committed staff and volunteers
One woman dies every two minutes during pregnancy or childbirth. What’s even more unacceptable is that most of these deaths are absolutely preventable. We are outraged,  and determined to help women — and their children — live. We propagate this through our Advocacy and Public Enlightenment Programmes at the rural areas.

2. Justice Programme
PGF recognizes that when women and children do not enjoy their full rights, their participation in political, social and economic life will be impeded thereby making it impossible for the country to reduce poverty, achieve economic growth and ensure sustainable development. In view of the gender imbalances and children's deprivations that still exist at various levels of development, it has become inevitable to develop a programme on women and children to consolidate and refocus efforts towards the promotion of gender equality and children's rights.We promote the rights of women and children through our focus on these four thematic themes:
i.  Legislative reform;
ii. Social empowerment;
iii. Economic empowerment; and
iv. Political representation.

3. Development Programmes
a) Good Governance
PGF’s Good Governance Programme is aimed at strengthening Democracy, Transparency and Accountability at the local and state government levels in Nigeria. The programme focuses on bridging the gap between public office holders, electorates and civil society organisations through town hall meetings, networking sessions and civic engagement. Specific objectives of our Good Governance programme include: Strengthening the capacity of the electorates to effectively and collectively demand accountability and transparency from public office holders; Improving governance through involvement of women in political participation in order to deliver better quality of services to Nigerian citizens in a transparent, accountable and cost-effective manner.
b) Education Work
In 2014 alone, PGF reached more than 5,000 students in Osun State.
We worked alongside communities at many levels to address all aspects of basic education. Drawing strength from our state-wide reach, years of experience, extensive education portfolio and partnerships. We developed innovative learning solutions and provided educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill everyone’s need to learn. We trained teachers and other school personnel to improve the quality of education while linking education programmes to interventions in health, nutrition and livelihoods to better address the reasons why children do not attend school. We also help communities assess and overcome their unique barriers to learning. We are also involved in Girls’ Education and Youth Empowerment Programmes
c) Women Empowerment
Women and children make up the majority of the 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty. At PGF, we are committed to ending poverty — by attacking its root causes, not only its consequences. In practice, we empower women, especially rural women socially, politically and economically which enables them to live meaningful life and contribute positively toward family growth and development. On the long run, we envisaged a better community through which women will have voice over their lives and decisions. As part of PGF’s commitment to Women Empowerment in our catchment area, PGF has empowered almost 120 women in recent past and looking forward to reaching many more women.
d) Youth Empowerment.
Nigeria is the most populated country in Africa with one of the largest population number of youths in the world, comprising 33,652,42. We are committed to empowering youths in our community to participate in the prevention of Ill-Health, promotion and sustenance of activities geared towards productive living, decent human conduct and good leadership qualities.
