About Us

Nahda foundation

The Nahda Foundation is committed to addressing the widening human capital gap in educationally less developed Nigerian States. This is borne out of our collective concern for our society’s backwardness in major areas of human endeavor and the terrible social, economic and political reality before us. Our aim is to equip coming generations with the requisite skills and experience to excel in a 21st century world and prepare them to adequately take advantage of future opportunities and confront emerging challenges.

To harness our diverse human capital potentials to drive sustainable development, social cohesion and long-term prosperity in Nigeria.

To develop and mentor the next generation of Nigerian leaders and professionals.

  1. To help in bridging the human capital gap in Nigeria.
  2. To work towards unlocking Nigeria’s human capital potential on a colossal scale.
  3. To help change the Nigerian narrative from that of poverty, underdevelopment and insecurity to that of peace, progress and prosperity.
  4. To promote a culture of collective social responsibility and cooperation in solving our problems.
