In Nigeria we promote peaceful responses to conflict and support the reconciliation process.

We demonstrate how to manage conflicts without violence and how to move from violence to peace and stability. We encourage dialogue between people involved in violence and those most affected by it, including those often left out of decision-making processes, such as women and young people. We also bring together people from different sections of society to discuss and address the root causes of conflict in Nigeria.

Our work is important because Nigeria is one of the largest, most populated countries in Africa, and there are various conflicts which threaten to undermine peace and stability in the country.

We have been working in Nigeria since 2012.
