With your support, collaboration and partnership in 2021…

–       DDI provided agricultural value chain development and commodity market access support for several CBOs (cooperatives/producer groups) across the country.

–       Several training organizations participated in an employability enhancement project, as many young Lagos residents were supported to graduate from a training programme that enhanced their employability while many were placed in paid post-training employment.

–       Several SMEs, youth- and women-led enterprises/start-ups benefited from DDI’s technical and managerial support and mentorship and were supported to develop businesses for social and community change across various communities in Nigeria.

–       Several off-grid energy enterprises were supported to increase access to clean and affordable, off-grid electricity for unserved and underserved communities across Nigeria. They were also supported to provide direct and indirect jobs through the implementation of these projects.

–       Smallholder farmer groups and livestock herders accessed a range of services including training and input/machine support to improve yield and income as well as increase agricultural productivity in the North East.

–       DDI also provided technical assistance such as due diligence services, project management, monitoring and evaluation, remediation, access to follow on financing and other vital developmental services to donors, grantees and partners.

For the past 12 months, we have enjoyed your support and collaboration. Thank you for believing in us. As we begin a new year, we again reaffirm our commitment to continue to provide our partners with excellent service, and we hope that our relationship this new year will turn out to be just like the one we enjoyed in the last business year.

Thank you again!
