What is the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) Portal all About 

The National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) “http://nasims.gov.ng” is the central management platform for the administration and coordination of Social Investment Programmes under the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

The Federal Government of Nigeria established the National Social Investments Programmes (“NSIP”) in 2016, to tackle poverty and hunger across the Country. The aim of these Programmes under the N-SIP focuses on ensuring a more equitable distribution of resources to vulnerable populations, including children, youth and women. Since its inception in 2016, these Programmes combined have supported more than 12 million beneficiaries country-wide.

The Federal Government of Nigeria’s Social Investment Programmes currently runs four different schemes in line with achieving its goals and these Programmes are available to all Nigerian citizens who meet the requisite criteria for participation. The N-SIP schemes administered by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development includes:

  • NPower
  • Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT)
  • National Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP)
  • Government Enterprise and Empowerment Program (GEEP)

Today, there are over one million beneficiaries of the CCT Programme. Additionally, over One Million Two Hundred Micro and Small Businesses have accessed loans to boost productivity, increase income and reduce poverty under the GEEP Programme.

Under the NPower Programme, over Five Hundred unemployed youths have been given income-generating opportunities. The Batch C of the NPower Programme is also set to kick off across the nation. Furthermore, over Eight Million Primary 1-3 children in public schools are receiving a meal per day under the NHGSF Programme.

The Federal Government has paid more attention to addressing the plight of the poor and vulnerable in the country despite the economic slump and revenue challenges. This informed the decision to initiate the National Social Investment Programme as a strategy for enhancing social inclusion.

NSIP is currently rated the largest and best Social Investment/Protection Programme across Africa as it continues to change the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable members of the society.
