Message from the Country Director

Dear Supporter,

Thank you for stopping by. For over 50 years, Oxfam in Nigeria has been working with partner organizations at the community,  sub-regional, regional and national levels to implement practical, contextual and innovative interventions to lift people out of poverty.

Our interventions are directed at reducing economic and social inequality in Nigeria through influencing for fair redistribution of revenues, good governance, improved social services, and rights protection.

We help farmers to be more productive and efficient, supporting food security and resilience.

Across Nigeria, we are working to build the capacity of low-income populations to cope with the impact of climate change, economic challenges and conflict; ensuring that they generate more income for themselves and their families.

We support local entrepreneurship, facilitating youth empowerment and small & medium enterprises (SME) development; facilitating inclusive supply chains, and inclusive markets that work for the poor and at same time climate resilient.

We strengthen active citizenship and systems for improved service delivery.

We implement interventions that empower the most vulnerable and marginalized persons to have the voice to demand for inclusive and accountable governance.

We are strong believers that no country can develop without empowering its women, so we ensure that women are at the heart of all the work we do.

The development challenges we work on are vast and broad-ranging, hence we work in partnership with governments, corporate bodies, the civil society, communities and individuals like you.

Join us today and be part of a global movement against injustice, inequality and poverty.

Together we can build a prosperous and secured Nigeria.

Dr. Vincent Ahonsi
Country Director
