We've been working in Nigeria since 2001 to help children learn, grow and become who they want to be.

Nigeria has made incredible progress, but millions of children are still being left behind.

We're focusing on child protection, education, health, nutrition and child protection to help put that right. 

Our protection programmes work from the community to the national level. We also campaign to ensure that girls have equal access to education and are protected from child marriage.

We're working to improve the health and nutrition of mothersnewborn babies and children, especially the poorest and most vulnerable. Through our campaigns, we advocate for a wide variety of issues that affect children, such as immunisation and breastfeeding.

To advance learning, we're increasing access to education programmes for children in the classroom and at home. And we work with families affected by natural disasters and conflict, setting up child-friendly spaces where children can learn, plan and receive the support they need to recover from trauma.
