About Us

Finishers Initiative for Social Transformation (FIST) otherwise known as FIST Africa is a not-for-profit organisation with the mandate of providing interventions for social transformation in Nigeria and on the continent of Africa, through civic engagement, community mobilization, advocacy and awareness campaigns, community intervention programmes etc. At FIST Africa, we believe consistent little efforts can yield great impact that could serve as a trigger and a catalyst for social transformation.
