Indigents' Right

We assist indigents Awaiting Trial Persons (ATPs) in prison spend unnecessary long period, this is because they cannot afford to hire a lawyer to represent them secure their freedom or speed their trial.

Skill Acquisition

We at ASPIR provide skill acquisition to enable them be responsible people in the society who will contribute to the progress of the society.


The society where we live in need to know their fundamental and civic rights and their corresponding liabilities, also we create awareness to enable people find help in areas we are involve.


It is the right of every child to go to school, indigents children are not in school due to poverty and those that are already adults need adult education.

Distribution of Relief Materials

We distribute relief materials to indigents in dire need and especially those affected by the incessant crisis and attacks in our country who are mostly Christians.

Peace Building

Peace building & Conflict resolution: We prefer people settled their difference amicably without recourse to court except where it is impossible.


Discipleship/Counseling: there is something that is most important of all, that is there relationship with Christ Jesus, how to leave and affect others positively.


We envision the poor gain justice and freedom (physically and spiritually), rehabilitated and empowered.
