As the projects BNET are asked to fund vary greatly, BNET is reluctant to set rigid funding criteria. Projects, however, must fall within our mission. Any significant grant has to be supported by a detailed business plan provided by the stakeholder. Stringent monitoring and evaluation is then completed throughout the life of the project alongside regular field visits to these projects by our Regional Representative.
We mainly fund 2 types of project:
- Managed by Partners
Current BNET management partners include VSO, Commonwealth Scholarship Plan, Immaculate Conception Girls’ Secondary School Umutu, UNIBEN e- library, National Teachers Institute.
Organisations that have received grants from BNET include Hope for the African Village Child, The Gethsemane Rehabilitation Centre, African Legacy: Akodi Afrika Centre, Federal University of Technology, Yola, University of Lagos and qualifying students that have been recommended or are linked with a BNET project.
BNET require extensive business plans to accompany new proposals for funds from both new and present stakeholder organisations. These business plans are scrutinised by our Board of Trustees when considering funding. It is the responsibility of BNET’s stakeholders to prove impact and if this is not proven it is at BNET’s discretion to temporarily or permanently halt funding.
