Ademilua Victoria A, Sule L. Aker, Adeyeye Adewole


As the quest for multi-stakeholders’ approach to the development of rural communities across Africa becomes intensified in view of reduced government efforts due to dwindling resources and high competing demands from other sectors, the paper examines available opportunities for rural development through CSR programs of cooperative societies. It observes that corporate social responsibility programs of cooperative societies have not been adequately reported and emphasized by researchers cum development experts. It amplifies available corporate social responsibility platforms by cooperative societies that have contributed significantly at fast-tracking developments in rural level across Africa. It concludes by identifying specific corporate social responsibility interventions for rural development across Africa through cooperative societies.

Keywords: Cooperative societies, Corporate Social Responsibility, Rural Development, Africa.
