United Nations Grants Special Consultative Status To Vicar Hope Foundation
With this status, Vicar Hope Foundation can have observers and representatives at the United Nations General Assembly, the UN ECOSOC, the Human Rights Council and public meetings of other United Nations intergovernmental bodies.
According to the United Nations, organizations in general and special consultative status like Vicar Hope Foundation are able to submit written statements relevant to the work of the Council on subjects in which these organizations have a special competence.
These statements may be circulated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the members of the Council. The United Nations Secretary-General may also request organizations in consultative status to carry out studies or prepare papers.
Reacting to the development, the founder of Vicar Hope Foundation, Mrs. Nkechi Ikpeazu said the recognition will give greater impetus to the Foundation’s work on women empowerment.
She said the Consultative Status will increase opportunities for greater collaborations with local and foreign NGOs and increase the capacity of Vicar Hope Foundation to deliver on its mandate beyond the shores of Nigeria.
