About Nigeria
On the coast of West Africa, Nigeria claims the title of most populous country on the continent and is home to more than 500 diverse ethnic groups.

The country is split between top and bottom by a religious divide of Christians and Muslims.

Its people have suffered from kidnapping and slaughter at the hands of the terrorist group Boko Haram, and w
ere affected by the recent Ebola epidemic. 

Girls in Nigeria are particularly in need of education. In the Northern portion of the country literacy rates for women are often well below 50%.
