Comparing Religious and Secular NGOs in Nigeria: are Faith-Based Organizations distinctive? Research Summary 56.
This Summary is based on Working Paper No. 56.
Case studies of three NGOs and four faith-based organizations (FBOs; 2 Christian and 2 Muslim) in two Local Government Areas in Kano State (largely Muslim) and one in Lagos State (religiously mixed), Nigeria, sought to identify whether and in what circumstances FBOs have distinctive characteristics with respect to their goals, values, organizational characteristics and activities related to the achievement of development objectives. All the organizations are well-established and engaged in HIV/AIDS-related work.
