The Initiative for the Advancement of Ethical Standard (INADES) is a Non-Governmental Organization registered under the British laws, for the advocacy of improved basic life enhancement tools and to address the decadence of ethical values within societies in the United Kingdom and Nigeria, with plans to extend our humanitarian course to other Sub- Sahara African countries in the long run.
We are aware of the yawning societal gap in the areas of ethical orientation, this can be linked to the circumstances surrounding affected populace, as we believe that the health and wealth of a nation is dependent on the orientation of its citizen when majority of them have a proper attitude to life. At the heart of ethics is a concern about something or someone other than ourselves and our own desires and self-interest.
At INADES, we believe ethics are concerned with other people's interests, with the interests of society, with God's interests, with "ultimate goods", and so on.
Our programmes at the Initiative for the advancement of Ethical Standard are aimed at ethical revival in our regions of impact, providing solutions to build a bridge to close the gap in ethical orientation, ensuring that our focus areas become a better place to live in. All these will be achieved through our collaboration with local and other international bodies as well as putting into consideration the priorities of the host government of regions of impact.
INADES is committed to international success in all ramifications and will continue its efforts to facilitate the development of platforms for listening and learning, at regional, national and local levels, to facilitate exchange and action between duty bearers and the most marginalized and unheard rights holders.
