Harnessing the Power of Education

At Leadership Development Foundation for Civic Literacy       2

In the words of Thomas Jefferson (1820): “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.”

With the special interest to enrich social and intellectual capital, the educational motivations of LDFCL feeds on the organizational awareness that it is a people’s responsibility to identify their challenges, and work towards eradicating them, and in order to establish a national character of our own, education that leaves room for innovation and growth and building capacities for inward and domestic motivations is needed.

Research has for long sustained the foundations of democratic practices. This is possible because of its potential to cultivate intellectual and ethical judgments, allowing educational inquiry full comprehension on issues that are of utmost importance to the needs of a society, as well as equipping societies with the tools to determine the best course of action in line with their specific needs.

LDCFL research interests are geared towards the promotion of national and international policy discussions on citizenship and development, civic responsibility, programmatic politics, credible and sustained leadership and building bridges from knowledge to Power as it relates to Nigeria and its place in the community of nations.
