The Nigerian Philanthrophic Forum

The TY Danjuma Foundation is a Private Philanthropy organization with a mission to enhance the quality of life of Nigerians by supporting initiatives that improve access to health and educational opportunities.

With a vision of a Nigeria where all citizens can access affordable quality Healthcare, Education and equal opportunity to realize their potentials, the Foundation works mainly through grants to non-Governmental Organizations, NGOs, and Community Based Organizations, CBO's, in the country.

Since the commencement of their first Grant Cycle in August 2010, about N400m in grants has been awarded or approved for award to Grantees implementing projects cutting across the Foundation’s broad focal areas: Community Health Initiatives; Education Interventions; Poverty Alleviation through Income Generation Initiatives; and, Policy Advocacy in Bauchi, Gombe, Nasarawa, Edo, Taraba, Ondo and the Federal Capital Territory.

The Foundation seeks to encourage affluent Nigerians to adopt a Philanthrophic Culture and as a result has organized The Nigerian Philanthrophic Forum, the first-ever of its kind gathering here in Nigeria.

The primary aim of this Forum is to speak directly to Nigerians on the nobility of giving for the good of all, and the essence of touching lives.

The programme is scheduled to hold in Abuja on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2010, and will feature the Foundation’s Grantees; participants from organizations selected from among those who could not fulfill all the requirements for award of grants under the Foundation’s 2010 Grants Cycle; Corporate organizations such as Guaranty Trust Bank, Procter and Gamble, Tulsi Chanrai Foundation, and the African Women’s Development Fund; as well as key actors from the Civic sector.

TARIERE will also be actively present during this Forum as we share a similar passion for touching lives. Two TARIERE followers who are interested in attending the Forum will receive FREE Registration to participate in the Forum.

Please send me an e-mail on stating why you want to participate.
