We are a Nigerian Non-profit,
Non-governmental Organization Incorporated on 16th May 2001
The Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI), was registered in 2001 as a Non-Governmental Organization with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria. Birthed in Nigeria by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (JHCCP), Baltimore, USA, CCPN transitioned its operations under the new name CCSI after an exciting 10 years of growth and operations in Nigeria and other African countries.
Our new name clearly communicates our expanding portfolio and identity as an indigenous Nigerian NGO. Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) reflects our ambition as we look towards our growing future and the plans we have in contributing to Nigeria’s development and the African continent.
Flagship CSR initiative
RUGAN ARDO ''WASH'' PROJECT
Many public health challenges such as: malnutrition, malaria, water borne diseases etc. faced by communities in Nigeria are largely preventable. Several rural communities in Nigeria lack access to safe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene services; malaria prevention and treatment services; as well as access to family planning (FP)/childbirth spacing (CBS) services. Women in rural areas are more likely to marry earlier than their urban counterparts, increasing the need for modern family planning. However, women in rural areas are less likely to use modern contraceptives when compared to their urban counterparts.
