Farafina Trust is a non-profit organization established to promote reading, writing, and a culture of social introspection and engagement through the literary arts. We believe that development is not possible without a coherent understanding of the dynamics of our societies, which literature and the arts can help grasp.
Our trustees are Uzodinma Iweala, author of Beasts of No Nation, Jide Bello, legal practitioner in Lagos, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of Half of a Yellow Sun, and Muhtar Bakare of Kachifo Limited. Our patrons are Gbolly Balogun, Funmi Iyanda and Louis Edozien.
Farafina Trust is presently structured around five sustainable programs:
- The Literary Skills Enhancement Programme
- The Public Schools Library/Book Programme
- The Editors’ Exchange Programme
- The Online Literary Platform
- Publication and Circulation of Farafina Magazine
