Federal Government of Nigeria National Social Investment Program Third Party Monitoring Program

ActionAid entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Social Investment Office (NSIO) within the Office of the Vice President of Nigeria, to coordinate third party monitoring of the National Social Investment Programme (N-SIP) and submit periodic reports to the NSIO. The extent of this collaboration is defined based on the specific aspects of the N-SIP.

Following a competitive selection process Kanem Borno Human Development Association(KABHUDA) was selected to partner with ActionAid in monitoring of the programmes on the N-SIP namely:

  • The N-Power Programme which is designed to assist young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 to acquire and develop life-long skills for becoming change makers in their communities and players in the domestic and global markets. The programmes provides a stipend of N30000 monthly.
  • The N-Power Programme which is designed to assist young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 to acquire and develop life-long skills for becoming change makers in their communities and players in the domestic and global markets. The programmes provides a stipend of N30000 monthly.
  • The Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSF) which aims to deliver school feeding to young children with a specific focus on increasing school enrolment, reducing the incidence of malnutrition (especially among the poor and those ordinarily unable to eat a meal-a-day), empowering community women as cooks and by supporting small farmers that help stimulate economic growth.
  • The Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) is a micro-lending intervention that targets traders, artisans, enterprising youth, farmers and women in particular, by providing loans between 10,000 and 100,000 at no monthly cost to beneficiaries.
