Challenge

The conflict in Northeast Nigeria has been described as one of the 'worst humanitarian crises'. Over 2 million people have been forced to flee their homes and leave everything behind. Living in temporary camps that offer few basic services, disease and hunger are rife. This project will support 160 families to set up small businesses and help them to rebuild their lives.

Solution

Street Child will provide 160 families with small business grants alongside intensive training from Family Business Officers on how to run a successful business. This will allow families to begin to rebuild their lives and ensure their children are well cared for, reducing the financial burden of food, medicine and education.

Long-Term Impact

This project will protect 160 extremely vulnerable families living in precarious situations, giving them hope for the future. It will improve the wellbeing of 160 families (an estimated 640 people in total) through empowering them to setup businesses and allowing them to rise out of poverty. These families will be able to afford to pay for the basic needs of their children, including nutrition, health care and education.
