Challenge

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

Solution

Street Child provided 160 families with small business grants alongside intensive training from Family Business Officers on how to run a successful business.

Long-Term Impact

This project improved the well-being of 160 families (an estimated 640 people in total) through empowering them to set up businesses so that they could lift themselves out of poverty. This enabled families to begin to rebuild their lives and ensure their children are well cared for, reducing the financial burden of food, medicine and education.
