Collaborators and Partners

Home / What We Do / Collaborators and Partners
Currently, Clothing 360 organization is the only NGO in Nigeria dedicated solely to the development of the nation’s RMG industry and ISID of the CTG value chain. We have reached out to relevant government parastatals, value chain stakeholders and private sector operators to build a concerted effort.

We have a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (MITI) to collaborate on our initiatives. We also have the endorsement of the Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) for our AAE focus area. In May 2018, we signed an MoU with the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) to partner on the implementation of our initiatives in the Southwest region.

Our potential collaborators for achieving ISID, local and foreign investment (FDI) and trade (global trade network linkage) in the CTG value chain are International Development Organizations, Development Finance Institutions and some private sector organizations. These organizations and institutions include but are not limited to the European Union (EU), European Investment Bank (EIB), UNIDO, IFC, World Bank, AfDB. Also, we continue to interact with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that are directly and indirectly linked to the CTG value chain such as National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTAN), Nigerian Textile Manufacturers Association (NTMA), Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria (FADAN), etc.

We are partnering with local experts to implement our robust communication, media and publicity plan. International NGOs we have reached out to for collaboration include Fairwear, Clean Clothes Campaign and Green Peace.
