Facebook Community Leadership Program: Nigeria To Benefit From $10m Investment


Nigeria’s technology communities are set to benefit from Facebook Community Leadership Programme, a global initiative that invests in people building communities. The platform will commit tens of millions of dollars to the programme, including up to $10 million in grants that will go directly to people creating and leading communities.

Jennifer Du
lski, head of groups and community, and Ime Archibong, vice president, product partnerships Facebook, at the Facebook Communities Summit Europe at the weekend said in addition, Facebook introduced new tools for group admins and the expansion of the company’s London-based engineering team that builds technology to help keep people safe on Facebook.

Community leaders often tell Facebook that with additional support they could have more impact. The Facebook Community Leadership Program is designed to empower leaders from around the world who are building communities through the Facebook family of apps and services.

It includes: residency and fellowship opportunities offer training, support and funding for community leaders from around the world. Up to five leaders will be selected to be community leaders in residence and awarded up to $1,000,000 each to fund their proposals.
Up to 100 leaders will be selected for Facebook’s fellowship program and will receive up to $50,000* each to be used for a specific community initiative. Community Leadership Circles bring local community leaders together to meet up in person to connect, learn, and collaborate. Facebook piloted three circles in the US in 2017 and will be expanding globally this year.

Groups for Facebook Power Admins, which Facebook currently runs with more than 10,000 group admins in the US and UK, are expanding to more members to help them share advice with one another and connect with our team to test new features and share feedback.
