Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) Programme

Funded by the European Union, the Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) Programme works with civil society organisations (CSOs) to enable them to be credible and effective drivers of change for sustainable development in Nigeria.

Our work focuses on the following areas:

  • Strengthening the system of civil society organisations, networks and coalitions to improve their internal, external and programmatic capabilities.
  • Providing a platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue for an improved, effective and inclusive regulatory environment for the operation of CSOs in Nigeria.  

We currently operate offices in Kano, Lagos, Sokoto, Rivers, Federal Capital Territory, Port Harcourt, and Adamawa.

The programme commenced implementation in May 2019.
