Non-profit Organizations (NPOs) and social enterprises
in Nigeria play a critical role in bridging the gaps in service delivery in the
country, promoting good governance, human rights and social justice. Increasingly,
they are also at the forefront of innovations that improve the quality of education
and healthcare.

However, a key challenge the social sector
faces is building strong, resilient organizations with teams and structures to
maximize resources and achieve the desired social impact. Non-profit organizations
and social enterprises face a number of challenges. These include inadequate presentation
and proposal writing skills, limited funding or access to financing and weak
internal governance mechanisms. This affects their overall effectively and
sustainability.
