About Us

DOMINICAN CENTRE FOR HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT:



The Centre is a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) owned by the Dominican Friars, Province of St. Joseph the worker, Nigeria & Ghana www.dchrd.org The Friars established the headquarters of the Centre on their 70-acres of land in Mogaji, Moniya area of Ibadan and was commissioned in March, 2007. The Centre has another 50-acres allocation in the permanent site of the proposed Dominican University in Moniya (3 Km away from the headquarters) and yet another 62-acres in Kumasi, Ghana. Our mandate is preaching. We do this not only in the homilies given at Mass, lecturing, writing books and pamphlets, appearing on radio or TV, and producing materials for the internet, but also to the people we meet in our work in Parishes, Schools, Hospitals, Prisons, Markets, and all the other places our work takes us. For our preaching to be relevant in our changing world it has to address the needs of the people.


The Centre is our contribution in response to the many pastoral challenges we encounter in Africa where hunger and poverty diminish the human dignity and make people vulnerable to every kind of misleading values and false religion. Our primary aim is a strategic grass-root socio-economic and religious empowerment of the poor targeted at poverty reduction, Capacity building, and Human Resources Development of the many rural communities and farmers in the area. The Centre, 5 Km. away from IITA (iita.org), also aims at building a bridge between Agricultural research institutes and rural farmers.


The three main sectors in our synergy include:

      1.    Agro/Crop Production and Processing- Cassava, maize, Yam, Soya-Beans.

      2.    Animal Husbandry – Cow, Pig, Rabbits, Turkey, Poultry.  

      3.    Aqua Culture – Cat-fish, and Tilapia. The three minor sectors include:                    

                 (a) Bee-Keeping for Honey production,
                 (b) Bio-Gas technology to achieve total recycling of wasted into wealth,
                 (c) Our Ecology system that aims to promote a holistic and sustainable way of life.

To complete the vision is a centre for spiritual renewal- Thomistic spirituality. We sincerely count on your support to achieve this vision.

 

 



 

 

...promoting the culture of self-reliance
predicated on economically viable organic and ecological farm management
