Centre for Adolescent Health and Social Development is a duly registered (Registration number 161301) not-for-profit organization in Nigeria poised to improve the wellbeing of adolescents in Nigeria and Africa at large. This we are currently doing by leveraging on sustainable partnerships with organizations whose mission and objectives align with ours, harnessing the power of technology and social media platforms as well as community interventions to reach our target population.

Over the past six years, we have been deeply involved in delivering school and community health interventions and programs across different communities (including hard-to-reach), schools (public and private) in different parts of North-Central, South-South and South-Western part of the country. Our interventions which have been largely focused on WASH, menstrual health, sexual and reproductive health, nutrition, and mental health for adolescents has had over 10,000 beneficiaries.

We have also systematically and consistently used our social media platforms to disseminate evidence-based, age and culturally appropriate health education to our target audience through live chats, webinars and social media posts.

We also take pride in capacity building, providing easy access to reliable and comprehensible health education materials for free dissemination and use during our intervention programs. In the past five years, we have produced and distributed about 5,000 copies of menstrual health and sexual and reproductive health pamphlets during our various interventions.

We also leverage on the wealth of experience and expertise of our Board of Trustees and volunteers to ensure our objectives and programs are well targeted, innovative, comprehensive and highly adaptable to suit social and cultural contexts.

Since inception, we have partnered with local and International NGOs, CBOs, Public and Private institutions such as Tulsi Chanrai Foundation (which recently awarded us a grant for implementation of projects in FCT), Codrops Solutions, Global Shapers (Lagos Hub), Agape for Women and Children Emancipation (a Kenya-based adolescent focused organization), The Chatty Caterpillar (a Singaporean Mental and Wellness Organization), Building Stars (a grassroot organization), One Voice Initiative for Women and Children Emancipation, Brain and Spines Surgery Consortium, Centre for Mass Education, and the Ministry of Education, FCT (through Universal Basic Education Board and Secondary Education Board).
