Researcher, Nigeria

I have been a volunteer Program Director with Fantsuam Foundation, a rural women’s NGO in northern Nigeria. I have responsibility for development of programs that complement the gender- and youth-focussed ICT initiatives (in health and education) and microfinance services of the organization. One of such initiatives was awarded the First Hafkin Africa Prize, and other activities have been featured on the Nigerian Press, CNN, BBC World Service, and BBC World. The sustainability of Fantsuam Foundation’s work has been through timely response to community development needs through efficient needs assessment, deployment of available resources and a rigorous and transparent evaluation of the value-addition of the activities. During my tenure Fantsuam Foundation has developed a replicable model for social change in rural Nigeria. It has three main elements, commercial, social, and educational.
