Welcome to BNET!

We are very pleased to welcome you to our website and hope that the many improvements we have made to it recently enhance your visit even further! Lots of changes have taken place but the two we would like to draw your attention to are The BNET shop, which has been updated to make it even easier to support our projects as you shop for our unique items, and the new and improved way you can JOIN ONLINE. Please do take a moment to have a look around to learn more about our work and the benefits of membership and if you would like to be kept up-to-date with all things BNET then please sign up for our Newsletter here!

What we do....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.

The Trustees thank you for your interest.
