OUR WORK IN NIGERIA

Since 2000, Women for Women International – Nigeria has served more than 60,000 women through our year-long programme in Enugu and Plateau states.

With limited access to health services and education, patriarchal norms, and mounting violence, Nigerian women struggle to gain economic opportunities and equality. Common discriminatory practices, amplified by extremist groups, subject women and girls to dangers, including forced early marriage and the possibility they will face violence for going to school.
