Message from the Country Director

Dear Esteemed Supporter,

Thank you for stopping by! For the past 50 years, Oxfam in Nigeria has worked with partner organizations at the local and national level to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty. We help farmers be more productive and efficient. We support local entrepreneurship. We save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. Our campaigns amplify the voices of economically and socially marginalized populations to influence the local and global decisions that affect them. 

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 have more money in their pockets for themselves and their families.  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, so we work in partnership with governments, corporate bodies, and people like you. Join us today and be part of a global movement against injustice and poverty. Together we contribute meaningfully to a prosperous Nigeria.

Contant Tchona
Country Director (Interim)
