The Tataaunawa Roundtable is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-allied, community centered organization operating out of Plateau State, North Central Nigeria. Tataaunawa brings people together. Connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs

Our strategy begins with people, and the belief that every individual deserves access to opportunity and the freedom to thrive. It is delivered through systems change, and the understanding that only by solving the root causes of social and economic exclusion, can we create lasting change.

Our strategy is built upon honesty and accountability, and a deep belief in the power of collective impact. It demands the ability to look at problems in new ways, and to recognize the opportunity for change. It requires ambition, optimism, and resilience in the face of complex challenges. It is the willingness to strive for better outcomes and impact, and to turn ideas into action. It is having the courage to try, and to fail – and then to adapt and try again.

At The Tattaaunawa roundtable Initiative (TRICentre), the values we bring to better the society is our ability to listen, learn and share with the aim of bringing solutions. An organization founded with a sense of purpose, and our unique heritage as a people in Nigeria, especially the North of the country.

From humble backgrounds in the early 2000 doing development work, from the media perspective we've been dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our communities. Our efforts are the result of PCD's visionary leadership, along with colleagues and long years of built friendships across faith and groups focused on helping communities find long-lasting peace through creative, and innovative means. This rich heritage defines who we are and what we do today.

We believe in leadership through service. This belief that true leadership depends on willing service was the principle on which Tattaaunawa was built, and drove the decisions that birthed it. So when we finally decided to register officially as an entity we were bringing together and collectively human resources near fifty years of practice, in a framework we call 360 Degrees Development. It is about Voices, Action and Connection in all that we do.
