Full Meaning for ASRI
The full meaning of ASRI is Auwal Social Economy Research Institute.
The ASRI Future Leaders programme, is an intensive, full-time, graduate training programme, that develops young university graduates for careers in the Civil Society and Government sectors, and therefore recruits individuals who are socially and politically active in their communities.
