Mission Statement

OR seeks to accelerate the unrestricted access, knowledge and usability of internet in Africa especially in Nigeria.

To use this platform as a veritable tool to pursue the respect, applications and adherence to human rights in line with the United Nation’s charter on Human Rights 

Vision Statement

Achieve a world in which everyone everywhere is connected to an open and universally accessible Internet.To see a world where human rights is the universal tenet of our existence.

Since its inception in 2001, OR has been at the forefront of national Internet education by bringing essential information and training to people throughout the worldand Nigeria in particular.We are inspired by the experiences garnered from a series of international stakeholder’s meetings on development and application of internet such as the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS), AfriNIC, ICANN, CIVICUS World Assembly as well as Internet Governance Forum. These meetings focused on how to develop the internet as a tool for poverty reduction and economic empowerment, and improving on social justice system, universality of information dissemination in real-time as well as helping government and institutions to market their products and services.

We believe that knowledge is power. We also believe that the beauty of every goodexperience sharing is in its application or step down approach to relevant stakeholders. So these programmes and meetings will have achieved its very objective when we have a larger Nigerian population with access and good knowledge of the internet. When we have a larger percentage of rural areas connected to the internet with affordable cost implication. When we can boast of a sizeable pool of resource in terms of management, development and maintenance this sector. This is our target at Our Rights.
