Charity description

National Institute for African Studies logo
NIAS offers scholarship, access to further education and empowerment for people that want to get involved in African development work. We also provide advice and guidance for institutions, including charities that want to get involved in ‘doing good work’ – the right way.

We are a development research charity aiming to end ‘inter-generational poverty transfers’ by helping people access sustainable means of livelihood. Simply put, this means that children born to poor parents don’t have to grow up and die poor too! Being more people focused and keen to ensure that research benefits real people rather than sitting on university shelves, we find the real benefit within new and existing research, turn it into programmes, policy advice and advocacy that directly helps large number of Africans in poverty overcome the challenges they face.
