We are scandalized that millions of our brothers and sisters live in extreme poverty in a world of riches. Yet we are filled with hope because we are the first generation with the means to liberate them.

“Advance the well being of all through participatory measures in line with Catholic Social Teaching”.

Our Mission


Welcome to Caritas Nigeria

Caritas Nigeria was established in September 2010 by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), as a specialized national development agency with a mandate for overall coordination of development programs for the Catholic Church in Nigeria. Although independently registered, Caritas Nigeria is an arm of the Church and Society Department of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN).

Caritas Nigeria has a Board of Trustees (BOT) which are the legal owners, and who bear all legal responsibilities for the organisation. The Trustees appointed a Board of Directors who perform oversight functions over the organization.

Caritas Nigeria also provided care, treatment and support to 39,921 patients in ten service delivery health facilities under the CHARIS program which was supported by the United States of America through the Centre for Disease Control and prevention (CDC).

Caritas Nigeria occasionally requires the services of professionals to work either as staff or consultants.

Caritas Nigeria believes in actively campaigning for change and understands that persistence pays off.

Caritas is patient because it knows that when it speaks, its voice is heard. Caritas’ voice is a powerful one – the sum of one million supporters – which calls for a moral way of living.
