About Us

The Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI), formerly known as Centre for Communication Programs Nigeria (CCPN) was registered in 2001 as a Non-Governmental Organization with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria.

Birthed in Nigeria by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (JHCCP), Baltimore, USA, CCPN transitioned its operations under the new name CCSI after an exciting 10 years of growth and operations in Nigeria and other African countries. Our new name clearly communicates our expanding portfolio and identity as an indigenous Nigerian NGO.

Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) reflects our ambition as we look towards our growing future and the plans we have in contributing to Nigeria’s development and the African continent .

With an office in Abuja and a robust institutional capacity, CCSI focuses on the central role of communication to impact health and social behavior, build brands and lead in technical guidance.

In addition to its diverse staff base, CCSI has a robust network of consultants, media partners and professional affiliations across the country whose expertise is deployed to connect with key influencers and stakeholders to implement relevant and context specific projects.

Set to inspire change, we believe that communication saves lives.
