The Britain-Nigeria Educational Trust (BNET) is a membership charity that promotes friendship and understanding between Britain and Nigeria by providing financial support for the benefit of education in Nigeria. We are dependent on voluntary contributions and donations from individuals, institutions and companies who share our charitable aims and a valuable and regular income is derived through the annual subscription of our members.

BNET is committed, through its endeavours, to increase the level of support given to the education of Nigerians which, we believe, is a vital component in the successful development of their country.

To learn more about our work and the benefits of membership please explore our website through the links above, not forgetting to visit the BNET shop.  

The Trustees thank you for your interest.
