In a rapidly evolving global landscape, partnerships are central to the attainment of any desired objective. The Afara Initiative is proud to partner with various players in the economic and human development value-chain: universities, governments, corporations and donors to fulfil our mission. Our commitment to transforming the Nigerian economy compels us to identify partners whose missions are aligned with ours.

We look forward to welcoming you into our community.



We form multi-year partnerships with universities interested in providing a 21st century skills and civic education curriculum. Our programmes are designed to enhance students’ preparedness for the world of work and to build active citizenship by the point of graduation.


We work with governments and state agencies to establish public-private partnerships that facilitate mutually reinforcing programmes for developing the human capital that will power Nigeria’s economic future and effect systems-level change.


We collaborate with corporate organizations to bridge the gap between students’ education and the real world. Our partners gain access to a pipeline of graduate talent that possesses the critical skills and abilities that employers seek.


We partner with a community of donors who seek to empower Nigeria’s youth to fully participate in the economy and foster sustainable development that creates jobs and improves livelihoods. We work with our partners to create sustainable financing models for quality tertiary education.
