Corporate Shared Value (CSV)

Given that people and the environment are integral to our work at Sahel, we are committed to creating sustainable value in communities through strategic investments, partnerships, and philanthropy. We are passionate about developing and giving back to the society in which we operate.

Focus Areas

Education Support Programmes

CSV prioritizes support to young scholars who are the future change agents of the nation and make up the next generation of agribusiness leaders. Our programme ranges from the provision of rotational funding opportunities to primary and secondary school students and yearly one-off scholarships and internship opportunities to undergraduates in Nigerian Universities. Every year since 2017, Sahel has awarded scholarships to at least two undergraduates from the faculty of agriculture in their final academic year in a Nigerian university. Read our 2019 SASP brochure

Community Empowerment

Sahel aims to foster the development of thriving communities through the implementation of humanitarian projects in Lagos state. In 2019, Sahel plans to execute three projects:

    • A Hospital support project to improve health care delivery in a selected health center in Lagos State.
    • A public-school support project to provide an improved learning environment for school children.
    • A Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) project to reduce illness and mortality rates of vulnerable groups in a coastline/slum community.

2018 Activities

Sahel Scholars Programme

In 2018, scholars were selected from the Faculties of Agriculture in Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and University of Nigeria, Nsukka for the 2018 Sahel Scholars Programme. The three scholars completed a six-week internship at Sahel to gain first-hand experience in agriculture consulting and private equity management. The Sahel team built the capacities of the scholars through supervised tasks and follow-up feedback on performance. At the end of the programme, the scholars received scholarships and applied to their final year of academic studies in their respective Universities.
