About Leventis Foundation Nigeria

The Leventis Foundation Nigeria was established in 1988 to take over and expand the work of the “Nigeria Advisory Panel” of the A. G. Leventis Foundation which had been active since 1979. In support of the Federal Government’s new Educational Program with its emphasis on self-sufficiency in food production, the Foundation took a major policy decision in 1986 by choosing as its main goal the training of young farmers in modern agricultural methods.

Since then, nine schools have been established in Nigeria and Ghana specialising in innovative ways of training small scale farmers to improve productivity, efficiency, and environmental sensitivity. Also, taking advantage of the latest research at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture and elsewhere. The trainees spend a year at the schools and then, returning to their farms and communities, are advised and supported by the schools’ extension programmes.

By their example, they transfer their skills to other farmers in their area, whilst the schools also organise short training courses and farmers’ field days for the surrounding communities. Beyond this, the Foundation is also a prime mover in the preservation of natural resources in co-operation with the Nigerian Conservation Foundation.

The Foundation supports and finances ad-hoc but strategic initiatives that can improve agricultural education and training towards sustainable development of the agriculture and rural sector of the economy in the sub-region. It develops and publishes periodicals and magazines, especially those aimed at improving the performance of small scale farmers.
