The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest German political foundation. Founded in 1925, FES is a private, not-for-profit organisation committed to the values of social democracy. The FES work towards the promotion of freedom, solidarity, and social justice. FES pursues these aims through its programs of political education, international cooperation, scholarships, and research both in Germany and internationally. FES maintains more than 100 offices worldwide, of which 24 are located in Africa. The Nigeria Office (now in Abuja and Lagos) began operation in 1976. As a non-profit institution, we organise our work autonomously and independently. We partner with Nigerian Civil Society Organisations, Government and labour market institutions.
