SCT Wins Home and Away Support!
SCT has secured funding both for its work in the UK and for the project it has been developing in Nigeria since 2009.
The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has awarded SCT a grant which will make a significant contribution to its core costs over the next three years, allowing it to pursue a new round of local Speakers’ Corner projects as well as develop new programmes in the UK.
Meanwhile the Ford Foundation is to provide funding for the new Speakers’ Corner Trust Nigeria which SCT is establishing to take the national project forward in Nigeria. SCTN is registered as an Incorporated Trust in Nigeria, has its own constitution, Advisory Council and Boards of Trustees and Directors and, with the benefit of Ford’s two-year grant, will now be able to recruit its own director.
SCT is extremely grateful to both Foundations for their generous support.
