The Ecobank Foundation aims to transform lives in Africa and focuses its attention and resources on the three key areas of health, education and financial empowerment.

It does so by leveraging:

  1. Ecobank’s digital platform to fundraise; and
  2. The Ecobank Academy to provide training in financial management, compliance, internal control and leadership.

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. |
