Story

DISPLACEMENTS IN THE NORTHERN DIASPORA’S

There are over 23,742 Children displaced as a result of the Boko haram attacks in north east Nigeria with only 22 IDP camps. These camps are overcrowded and these families are in urgent need of support! There are also children who are homeless and living on the streets as a result of this, it is profoundly unsafe our projects aim to make a difference to their lives.

MAKOKO RESIDENTS

In July, the state ministry of waterfront issued a 72-Hour quit notice to residents of Makoko Nigeria, leaving over 30,000 people homeless. This number includes vulnerable children. As there is a lack of social housing available in the region, Wren as a charitable organisation are determined to provide assistance and rehouse these individuals into privately rented accommodation. We will also create a mass movement to campaign for social change and ensure government build homes to house homeless individuals.

We are holding two projects in October 2019.The Rehabilitate Campaign which will focus on providing suitable accommodation for a hundred homeless individuals including woman and children in the key areas of Makoko Western Nigeria and Northern Diasporas and the Reclaim Campaign will equip these individuals with the necessary skills needed, so they never have to rely on benevolent funds to afford a home. We also intend to connect them with available arrays of jobs local to their area.

    Lagos at the moment, is estimated at 24million people which is equal to that of 30 African countries put together. While by 2050, the State is on track to be a city of 36million people or the 6th largest city in the world after Mumbai- yet its challenges are enormous. Wren will help homeless individuals find and keep a rented home - We do this by working with landlords to ensure a supply of places to live, and giving homeless people the tools and knowledge they need to rent successfully. Fighting to End Homelessness in Nigeria and Africa!
