The NSF (UK), started as an annual sports and family fun day event but has now expanded into other areas of need within the Nigerian diaspora community in the UK. We have held an annual sports and family fun day event since 2012. We added an annual lecture in 2014 with the aim, as key stakeholders in the Nigerian Education system, to stimulate awareness about the myriad of complex problems that may be impacting on the present education system.
In the autumn of 2016, on our 5th year anniversary, we held a high profile event at the House of Commons in celebration of this remarkable milestone. The key note speaker challenged the organisation to think big, think institutions and to think legacy. NSF (UK) relishing this challenge has since launched our vision 2020, a road map towards the lofty aspiration.
In 2017, we introduced new initiatives, including collaborations with other organisations on areas of mutual interests (e.g. #BookDriveNigeria2017) and also monthly members networking sessions, where matters of interests are brought to members attention (e.g. health, healthy living, pension and financial inclusion).
