June 2014 - Bukuru suffered terribly in the religious conflict and many parts of this town on the edge of Jos were burnt to the ground. The region is predominantly Muslim in a culturally Christian dominated area. Because of this Bukuru has received little in the way of an education budget and many of the local people struggle to make ends meet.
October 2014 - Our centre in Bisichi is located inside an old Mosque. Here Christians and Muslims from Bisichi and surrounding suburbs come to develop their skills so that they can find employment. The fact that the elders have allowed this to happen in Mosque shows just how much they value the peacemaking initiative.
NEW* We are in the process of establishing a computer centre in Barkin Lardi: a township about an hours drive from Jos. The town is home to many Felani, a traditionally Islamic nomadic tribe who live across the sahel and are responsible for a lot of violence (often in retaliation) throughout northern Nigeria. We hope to establish this computer centre in the first half of 2016.
