Who we are
Caritas Nigeria is a vehicle of justice and peace established by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) to provide a space for everyone to practice this giftedness, for there can be no true peace without justice, and the ‘new name of peace is human development’.
Caritas is the love we share or extend to others, even to those we may never know personally but who require to be uplifted from ignorance, deprivation, sickness, hunger, to a minimum of human dignity, regardless of their tribe, religion or gender. Caritas Nigeria is an initiative, your initiative. Caritas Nigeria depends totally on the support of men and women of goodwill who have a care for justice and peace.
The registered name of the organization is Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria (CCFN).
Caritas Nigeria Vision is A harmonious environment where everyone enjoys fullness of life.
Caritas Nigeria thus intends an inclusive and peaceful world without deprivation, where everyone reaches his or her full potential, where everyone, without exception, has life and enjoys it to the full.
Caritas Nigeria Mission of Advancing the wellbeing of all through participatory measures, in line with Catholic Social Teaching ties in with the vision and seeks to rely completely on the participation and ownership of all stakeholders in accomplishing the outcomes, guided by sound principles.
