Since its launch in 2016, the Nimbus Aid Project has supported businesses and non-profit organisations committed in educating, enabling, and empowering their communities.
The Nimbus Aid Project, formerly known as "Nominate A Charity," is part of Nimbus Media Ltd's commitment to giving back to the community and society.
Every year, Nigerians are invited to nominate a non-profit organisation that has demonstrated a dedication in educating, enabling, and empowering their communities. A winner is selected via social media and rewarded with marketing and awareness support on Nimbus digital screens across Nigeria.
The initiative's purpose is to incorporate the following categories into the Nimbus Aid Project, making them eligible to participate in the program and reap its advantages.

It will support 10 women-led pre-seed tech startups and SMEs with over N20m in marketing support and brand awareness.
