Today, the Ogoni people have: No functioning schools, No functioning hospitals, No social welfare programs, No pipe-borne water, No electricity, No job opportunities, No economic development projects and the people are living under fifty cents ($0.50) a day.

Today, many children in Ogoniland, Nigeria do not have equal opportunity to education because they parents cannot afford the money for basic education. Research in Ogoniland also revealed that 50% of Ogoni children do not have elementary education, 70% of Ogoni children do not have secondary education, and 90% of Ogoni children do not have college education. As a result of the extreme poverty, parents cannot afford money for their children's school fees, uniform, shoes, books, etc; those mostly affected are the ones who have lost their parents.
