The Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO) is the first generic membership body for civil society organisations in Nigeria that facilitates effective advocacy on issues of poverty and other developmental issues. Through its civil society reforms and strengthening programme, it has constructively engaged regulators and the National Assembly on laws guiding the operations of civil society organisations to improve the operational environment for nonprofits including improving the sector’s transparency and accountability.
With the support of Google.org, the Network is currently embarking on a project to build the capacity of nonprofits in Nigeria. It is aimed at addressing the findings (capacity gaps) identified in the Nonprofit Assessment research undertaken by the Nigeria Network of NGOs including the building of digital skills by nonprofit board, executive directors and staff.
NNNGO is therefore soliciting interest from experienced facilitators in the nonprofit sector (preferably Executive Directors), to work with the Network in training nonprofit board, Executive Directors and staff, in her events.
