This project funding comes on in addition to about 4million raised towards the Uyo project, a Crop processing facility in Abak, and another 1.8 million for the Kaduna happy learners project. Both projects are currently in various stages of implementation by the location groups and 2018 Alumni.
All sponsorship is a joint support from SI4DEV and TSDI (The Spring Development Initiative is an affiliate based in the United States). The funding has been agreed by the latter’s board of directors. It is a corporate investment in our Alumni’s projects and their personal development as leaders. The board of both charities are expecting a lot from us and we plan to deliver.
