The Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO) is the first generic membership body for civil society organizations in Nigeria that facilitates effective advocacy on issues of poverty and other developmental issues. Established in 1992, NNNGO represents over 1800 organizations ranging from small groups working at the local level, to larger networks working at the national level.
NNNGO aims to promote interconnectivity at the grassroots, provide opportunities for CSOs/NGOs/CBOs and PVOs to contribute to the advancement of national and global peace through developmental activities focused at the grassroots, whilst networking with each other and other national and international agencies, with the aim of meeting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
They want to coordinate a civil society group that is inclusive and offers equal opportunity, people participation, community leadership, independence of voluntary action, reflection of linguistic and cultural diversity, choice and a genuine partnership with other sectors on a best practice basis as a catalyst for sustainable development and poverty alleviation.
WHAT THEY DO
They support Nigerian NGOs in their commitment to poverty reduction, promotion of human rights and in bringing development to the door-steps of the common man. They provide a range of services and opportunities to their members in order for them to achieve their organizational objectives and also exert influence on issues of national importance.
The Network is charged with the objective of identifying, registering, coordinating, building capacity and mobilizing civil society organizations to promote interconnectivity and bring equity, justice, peace and development to grassroots communities throughout Nigeria, including the implementation of NEEDS, SEEDS, LEEDS and the MDGs.
Their membership includes over 20 national organizations and over 250 membership organizations focusing on different thematic areas of development, all of whom work to support a diverse range of membership communities across the nation. In total their outreach to the third sector in Nigeria is estimated to be in the excess of 5000 which includes both members and affiliates at national and global levels.
