NNNGO Membership Survey Report

NNNGO Membership Survey Report

The annual NNNGO membership survey tracks how well NNNGO is engaging with its members and meeting programme objectives. The Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO) is home to 2,400 nonprofit organisations spread across the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.

 

It is critical that the Network’s management understands its members satisfaction of services rendered by the organisation and what changes or improvements they would like to see.  In December 2017, the Nigeria Network of NGOs completed a survey of its members across the country. It is designed to indicate the health of the Network’s membership and identify emerging needs of members for planning and retooling of the organisations membership related activities.

 

The NNNGO membership satisfaction survey was taken by 111 organisations across the 6 geo-political zones of the country. We thank the respondents to the survey questions for their role in making the survey and reporting possible.

 

This is not just a report for the shelves, the Network’s management will use this report to make its membership’s voice stronger in its plans and programmes—and in developing and strengthening the organisation as a platform for inspiring, connecting and advocating for the nonprofit sector as an essential contributor to Nigeria’s communities and economy.

With the support of Open Society Initiative for Western Africa (OSIWA), the Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO) in collaboration with the Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering (SCUML), organised two regional workshops in Lagos state and Abuja on 19th and 26th February 2018 respectively.

The workshops with the theme Effective Implementation of Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Requirements in the NPO Sector in Nigeria were one-day events respectively and aimed at sensitizing non-profit organisations on the Nigerian anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism regime.

Participants were taken through the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and (GIABA) standards on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) for nonprofit organizations (NPOs) and the compliance requirements; the sectoral risk assessment process, its objectives and NPOs’ role from the perspective of FAFT standards with comparative practices of other countries as well as the mutual evaluation process by GIABA / FATF in Nigeria and how this may affect NPOs.
