ASAP West Africa Chapter was established in Lagos, Nigeria to work towards eradicating poverty in West Africa in line with the vision of ASAP Global, with hopes of having a snowball effect in the entire region. Through the efforts of academics and interested stakeholders, the membership base for ASAP West Africa is expanding rapidly. The establishment of ASAP West Africa Chapter is timely considering how deep poverty has ravaged the region. Poverty and its attendant effects have been tolerated long enough – ASAP West Africa has developed a strong will to champion the expansion of a global network to help scholars, teachers and students contribute and actively participate in alleviating poverty globally.
Our objective is to use education to proffer solutions to the lingering social, economic and environmental depravations, and human rights violations in the region. In this regard, ASAP West Africa is committed to promoting collaboration amongst academics, researchers and stakeholders. A key component of our strategy is exploring academic research in identifying societal issues that negatively affect development and elevate poverty. Consequently, we will initiate specific projects targeted at eradicating the menace of poverty and related issues. ASAP West Africa is committed to partnering with individuals, institutions and organizations that share our vision of poverty eradication. Additionally, we will employ the use of regional advocacy through conferences and seminars, public lectures, academic mentorship and internships for students, enlightenment campaigns, stakeholders’ town hall meetings, global collaborations and publications. To ensure our projects remain aligned with the specificity of purpose for which they were designed, we lay emphasis on monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment.
