The growing gap between funds needed by humanitarian groups and funds available is a major cause of communities’ vulnerability to disasters.
The Ecobank Foundation aims to transform lives in Africa. We focus attention and resources on three key areas: health, education and financial empowerment.
Our approach is two-fold:
- Leverage Ecobank’s capacity building resources through the Ecobank Academy, strengthening systems by providing training in financial management, compliance, internal control and leadership
- Make use of Ecobank’s innovative digital platform to aggregate resources for Africa’s transformation
Our programmes are in line with Ecobank Foundation’s pursuit of achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the African Union’s Agenda 2063.
Millions of Africans lack access to basic healthcare, while a number of serious diseases are particularly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa. At Ecobank Foundation we want to play a significant role in improving health, by helping to build resilient health systems across the continent.
The Ecobank Foundation makes a difference to humanitarian initiatives and donor aid grant practitioners across Africa by providing innovative learning solutions that are targeted to their needs. This equips them with the administrative and management skills to better serve the vulnerable sectors and communities in need of their assistance.
We leverage Ecobank’s innovative digital platform to help fundraise across Africa and mobilise the capital in support of charities, disaster appeals, healthcare and other worthwhile causes.
