At the Foundation, “Our
projects are driven by enterprising, cerebral and young patriotic Nigerians who
are selflessly committed to impacting their environment to shun retail and
petty corruption, I believe this support will further accelerate our collective
quest to meet the global most valued agenda in Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs). It will reawaken us as a nation, specifically against ingenious acts of
citizen-corruption, poverty and environmental unfriendly acts”
“We have such ambition to influence our
social space which has suffered social corrosion and a depletion of
societal core values with debilitating effects on our collective psyche”,
Fadeyi
said.
“Our quick
areas of interest is to strengthen capacity by partnering with some
institutions including law enforcement Agencies to combat petty corruption. We
shall also work with selected Nigerian schools and explore opportunities for
instilling the right values and raising Anti-Corruption Ambassadors from that
vulnerable sector of the society”

Akin
noted.
Akin Fadeyi, a rare breed leader of this generation
Since the beginning of the year, Akin Fadeyi Foundation has creatively deployed one minute dramatic
infomercial parodies to campaign against corruption in Nigeria through a
citizen led initiative. This has been with the inclusion of top-rate thespians
in Nigeria. NOT IN MY COUNTRY tells the story of the corrupt on
the one part, and the campaigner against corruption on the other part – both
from the same populace of a nation blessed with culturally adept and
value-driven people but beleaguered by the social dysfunction of endemic
corruption.
Other Civil Societies Organizations (CSOs) that are
benefitting from the Anti-Corruption grants funded by the European Union, and in partnership with UNODC and UNDP are Youth Progressive Association in Taraba, 
African Network for Environment & Economic Justice,
Justice Development and Peace Commission,
 Alliance for Credible Elections
, African
Centre for Rural Development
& Environment,
Self-Help Development Facilitators, Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria, Integrity Organization, and The
New Generation Girls and Women
Development
Initiative.
