Kano Hub

Kano, with its rich history, heritage, culture, and economic activity historically serving not just Nigeria, but much of West Africa, is home to our amazing hub. Kano hub is made of forward-thinking and talented young Nigerians who come from different backgrounds and walks of life. Kano shapers believe in not just improving the state of our community, but also in our own growth, improvement and development as individuals, and as a group and in helping others do the same. Our diversity is definitely one of our strengths and has been a major contributor to our success and growth as a hub.

Our hub has become a key stakeholder in the development of our city, with projects having impact across thematic areas ranging from health, to education, youth capacity building, women and youth empowerment, sustainable fashion, entrepreneurship, water, the environment and climate change; internally displaced persons, among others. Kano hub hosted the first and only national gathering/summit of Shapers from all seven hubs in Nigeria through which Shapers connected and collaborated.
