Experience has shown that communal, sectarian and religious crises do not only kill but destroys communities. It displaces people and turn house owners into Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees dwelling in camps. The insurgency in the northeast and other parts of Nigeria has increased poverty level as well as fear, aggression, insecurity and tension. In addressing this problem, COFP Foundation advanced a range of activities that drives community development and gear towards alleviating poverty. More emphasis is placed on rebuilding lives of the vulnerable women and girls living in IDP/refugee Camps and also in the rural poor communities with the ultimate goal of helping them to help themselves out of abject poverty through vocational skills empowerment program.
COFP also concentrates on fostering the well-being of every Nigerian Child by fighting vigorously to end all forms of violence against children. By working together with our partners, we are more committed to building a better and safer world for children.
