#NGOconnect2016: 35 Youth NGOs attended the Academy 2016

The Academy: NGO Connection Day 2016 brought together young social innovators across board to learn the art of organizational growth system using modern working tools that will translate into delivering great community development projects.

The event recorded more participants this year that had the opportunity of engaging the Academy’s seasoned facilators. A total of 33 NGOs from 7 States in Nigeria attended the Academy this as against 25 in the previous year.

 Sustainable and scalable projects were used to lead the Academy’s activities; developing fundable projects, engaging funding organizations, networking and learning skills around proposal/report writing were other courses engaged in the Academy.

The overall objective was to provide technical support for all youth-led NGOs with genuine interest for society transformation but lacking access to modern tools and management strategies. NGO Connection Day 2016 provided among other things; training and networking opportunities. This initiative will ultimately result into building a robust and reliable social/community development (Non Governmental Organizations) that will support government’s effort to solving several of the challenges facing the nation.
