NAIFS is an association of all Ijaw female students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria and diaspora. It was founded by Comrade Joseph Evah (coordinator Ijaw Monitoring Group and former Publicity Secretary, Ijaw National Congress) and is one of the grassroots movements under the IMG umbrella.
The group seeks to provide a unified identity for young Ijaw women who have migrated to various universities and schools across the country and world. By fostering the leadership potential of the young women of the Ijaw nation, NAIFS provides both a voice for their concerns and allows the opportunity for them to give back to their own communities.
NAIFS is a counter-force to the insecurity and underdevelopment of Ijawland today and seeks to promote unity and peace in a torn nation.
