Speakers’ Corner Trust Nigeria (SCTN) regards partnership and collaboration as a key both to its success and growth and to its ability to contain its own size and costs as an organisation.
It would, therefore, welcome proposals for cooperation from any appropriate quarter. We have secured significant in-kind support from a number of organisations including the:
Oxfam in Nigeria
British High Commission, Abuja
UNDP DGD Project
American Corner Jos
Donors & Foundations
The Ford Foundation’s grant makes a significant contribution towards the meeting of SCTN’s fundraising goals. However, further contributions are required.
SCTN will continue to seek funding from donor bodies and foundations both towards its core costs and/or for specific projects and programmes.
Corporate Support and Sponsorship
SCT has been successful in the UK in attracting support, often in kind, from the private sector. SCTN will seek a limited number of relationships with companies and organisations which can
Provide financial support
Offer in kind support for aspects of its work including, for example, professional services
Introduce access to skills or networks which will add value to its work
Provide support and leadership in promoting projects at a local level
In 2013, SCTN was able to secure sponsorship from a private organisation called ZDDC Ltd for the first ever Youth Amplified Schools Debate in collaboration with the FCT Secondary Education Board commemorating Children’s day 2013.
The SCTN Youth Amplified project is SCTN’s project aimed at improving English speaking skills, grammar, public speaking and presentation, and building self-esteem of young people below the age of 18 years.
