Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in over 99 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons on the basis of need, regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality. CRS works through local church and non-church partners to implement its programs, therefore, strengthening and building the capacity of these partner organizations is fundamental to programs in every country in which CRS operates. CRS has worked in Nigeria for more than 25 years. Through local partners, CRS has implemented programs in 24 of the country’s 36 states, demonstrating the agency’s extensive grassroots network and significant capacity to reach the rural poor. Focusing on agriculture, emergency response and recovery, and health, CRS is helping to strengthen health care systems, Catholic Church partners, other community-based organizations, and government institutions. CRS’s current projects are improving the lives of more than 1.4 million Nigerians.
CRS Nigeria is leading an exciting and innovative project designed to develop sustainable approaches to lift some of the most vulnerable households in Nigeria out of poverty. The project known as Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project is funded by USAID for a period of five years (from July 2013 to July 2018) for Northern Nigeria states of Sokoto and Kebbi and the Bwari Area Council in the Federal Capital Territory. The project is implemented by a consortium of non-governmental organizations, led by CRS Nigeria. The project is based in rural communities and targets 42,000 vulnerable households. The project consortium works closely with multiple stakeholders within government at state and local levels, and amongst private sector. The project also works with local civil society organizations and incorporates a focus on local capacity building for sustained service delivery in project locations.
CRS’ Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project engages communities in agricultural-led growth interventions, using a multi-sector approach to help the very poor households grow their agriculture production, incomes and improve nutrition. The project aimed to improve agricultural practices, promoting post-harvest storage for nutrient rich crops already being produced, and market-oriented approach to diversification of production, ensuring all agricultural activities are adapted to specific agro-ecological and cultural context. The project also assists vulnerable families with income diversification and provision of participatory comprehensive nutrition activities at the community level.
