What we Work On


We improve the health of poor and marginalised people, particularly women, children and people with compromised immunity through integrated community-based health interventions, ensuring accountable health governance in communities. We help to strengthen systems that improve access of vulnerable population to health services through advocacy for inclusive health policies. We empower and build the resilience of local communities to take responsibility for their own health, using community participatory tools and social behaviour change communication strategies.

Governance and social development

Our governance and gender programme seeks to improve government accountability and responsiveness to the needs of poor and marginalised people. We are helping communities to raise their voices to demand accountability, promoting engagement between people and government and strengthening community structures. We promote inclusive participation by ensuring gender equity and the participation of women and girls in development activities, by challenging harmful socio-cultural norms that make women and girls in Nigeria suffer systematic disadvantages.

Humanitarian response

Increasing insecurity and violence in the northern part of Nigeria has led to millions of people becoming displaced and losing their sources of livelihood. We have built strategic partnerships that have enabled us respond to the needs of those affected by the crises. We have provided relief to over 400,000 displaced people since this work began in 2009. Our work in north-east and other part of Nigeria has improved the food security and livelihoods of internally displaced people in Adamawa, Borno, Benue, Nasarawa Gombe, Ebonyi, and Enugu states amongst the rest of the states in Nigeria. Our work cuts across emergency response, livelihoods, protection and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) among the most vulnerable populations in conflict areas and less prvilaged areas in Nigeria.

Where we work

We work in areas where the need is greatest and we have strong existing partnerships. Currently, we operate in 11 states, and have offices in a few states around the country Nigeria like Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, Nasarawa and just to name a few, as well as our main country office in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
