A consultancy firm , C and F Porter Novelli, has partnered with ORBICOM-UNESCO to introduce training that will help higher institutions close funding gaps.

Mr. Anthony Ajero, account manager of the C and F group, made the revelation in a statement Monday in Lagos.

Ajero said C and F have partnered with ORBICOM-UNESCO , an international network of faculty and practitioners in communication, and Minnesota State University in Moorhead, United States, to bring the program to the Nigeria.

He said the other partners were Strengths Incorporated and Pace Fundraising in the United States.

Ajero said the program was a “Strategic Fundraising and Campaign Training (SFCC) program.”

He said the SFCC was a multi-faceted international training program, aimed at equipping vice-chancellors, rectors and senior officials of higher institutions with the skills required for successful and sustainable fundraising over decades.

According to him, specific to the Nigerian situation, the SFCC training will help higher education leaders to successfully respond to the existential funding crisis.

He said it would be delivered through seven free monthly webinars, adding that education administrators could benefit from the free monthly webinars by registering online.

“C and F has always been one of the most sought-after strategic communications consulting firms, not only in Nigeria, but also in West Africa and beyond.

“The SFCC initiative is another in a long line of impactful initiatives that we have partnered with.

“SFCC aligns with our founding philosophy of working with local and international brands that want to have a positive impact and therefore achieve business results greater than ever imagined.

“Hence our vision of ‘public relations, for good’ in the 60 countries and 100 offices where Porter Novelli’s mantra lives,” he said.

Ajero revealed that a hybrid international summit will also be held between September 15 and 18, at Minnesota State University in Moorhead.

In addition, Professor Jibrila Amin, former Chairman of the Vice Chancellors’ Committee, said “as we all know Nigeria is going through a funding crisis of its higher institutions.

“This training will help us to avoid a further degradation of education at the higher level. “(NAA)
