Strategy and Innovation for Development Initiative (SI4DEV) is the Nigerian affiliate organization of The Spring Development Initiative in the USA. SI4DEV was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission in November 2017, with three founding trustees. The founders have over 10 years experience of providing support to improvement partners in Nigeria, including individuals, small enterprises and local nonprofits, has observed a gap in the capacity necessary to maximize their efforts to create social change and sustainable development, both within and outside the government.
Several communities in low and middle-income countries are under-served and neglected mostly due to lack of access to information and resources, impacting the reach of potential and young changemakers in these communities.
Through the Initiative, we plan to provide training programs, technical assistance, collaborative forums and seed funding to deliver quality programming to our partners. Beneficiaries and partners will span various sectors and will include government officials and policy makers, healthcare providers, educators, civil society and faith based organizations, political and business leaders.
These stakeholders will in turn inspire and influence their communities and champion the use of innovative and evidence based strategies to achieve lasting results in governance, health, education, and enterprise. Our diverse experience in community-based partnership activities allows us to scale some of our previous impact and develop new programs and pilots with our supportive donors.
