How the Foundation works
TY Danjuma Foundation works mainly through Non Governmental Organizations and Community Based groups in Nigeria. Our strategy of working through partnerships is intended to build institutional capacity of groups, supporting innovation and ensuring that the funding provided meets the needs of the target beneficiaries and is culturally relevant. In doing so, the Foundation encourages its grantees to forge collaborations and partnerships with local, state and national government agencies to enhance sustainability of the projects.
The Foundation also seeks collaboration with other grant makers and international agencies working in the target areas. Where necessary, the Foundation will leverage additional funding from other sources to support partners’ initiatives.
