We are committed to
research in Nigeria in
our own little way.
Who We Are
We are a non profit organization (funded by ARAFarms.org) out to support biomedical research in Nigeria.
We understand that biomedical research are the window to groundbreaking discoveries in the medical field, hence the need for enabling support to encourage researchers in Nigeria.
The financial implications of biomedical research in Nigeria can be said to be burdensome and outrageous. Most especially when they also include the use of research animals among others.
For this reason , The ADEWUYI RESEARCH ANIMAL FOUNDATION (The ARAFoundation) is geared up towards supporting Researchers in Nigeria through providing soft grants in form of free research animals for biomedical research.
It is our hope that these grants get to those who truly need and deserve them.
6 GRANT PHASES ARE AVAILABLE YEARLY.
PHASE 1: JANUARY- FEBRUARY || PHASE 2: MARCH -APRIL || PHASE 3: MAY – JUNE || PHASE 4: JULY -AUGUST || PHASE 5: SEP – OCT || PHASE 6: NOV- DEC
