CARITAS Program in Nigeria

Start a Campaign
Help Support Catholic Schools

Nigeria 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 were affected by the recent Ebola epidemic. Now they are currently facing another terrorist group called SARS. 

Nigeria children in school

Education is simply too much for Nigeria’s poor people to afford and 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%.

Children in Nigeria

CARITAS For Children supports a partnership between the Diocese of Nsukka, Nigeria and the Chicago Catholic schools which began based on the friendship between Cardinal Francis George, O.M.I. and then Bishop Francis OkoboThese visionaries established a unique partnership of promoting Catholic education in September 2006 in an effort to establish a unified Catholic education school system for the Nsukka Diocese.

This project involves the construction of new schools, pre-school through high school, as well as a teacher training college, with the aim of fostering and maintaining Catholic education for the children of Nsukka
