The official launch of the Meta Nonprofit Training Program took place in Lagos, Nigeria on Tuesday, 14 June 2022, with key development stakeholders in attendance. The launch relayed Meta Africa’s plans to strengthen social impact in West Africa by
- Strengthening nonprofit operational capacity in Anglophone West Africa for 1,500 non-profit personnel by supporting digital, and technical capacity-building with a chance for funding
- The launch of a six-month accelerator program for 50 NGOs
- Collaborative engagements with strategic key stakeholders in the civil society sector
The Meta training programs for nonprofits and social enterprises in Nigeria and across Anglophone West Africa are committed to delivering programming that will help them increase digital savviness. The goal is to work very closely with the social impact and nonprofit sector across Africa to help them learn to scale the impact of their work via the use of Meta’s platforms.
Meta offers a new training programme delivered by the Nigeria Network of NGOs, helping nonprofit organizations to build capacity on how best to maximize their reach and engagement using Meta. On a monthly basis and throughout 2022, virtual training will be delivered to nonprofits across the country by Meta certified trainers on different topics such as Facebook 101, online safety, community management, and content strategy.
