The USAID Civil Society Project (the “project”) is a five-year project financed by USAID Nigeria and implemented through a contract with Chemonics International. The goal of the project is to strengthen good governance by increasing the capacity of civil society networks and coalitions to influence the development and implementation of key democratic reforms at local, state, and national levels. The Project explicitly aims to engage marginalized populations, including women, youth, people with disabilities, and other minorities in the process, and emphasizes leadership and innovation. The Project aims to support six Nigerian “anchor” civil society organizations (CSOs) to become sectoral leaders and stewards of their advocacy issue, with each anchor supporting approximately 50 Nigerian organizations and institutions within a thematic issue cluster over the course of the program.
