Who are CFM?

 

CFM started as a Bible college in Northern Nigeria in 2007. Soon after crisis errupted in Jos resulting in tremendous loss of life as both Muslim and Christian communities suffered. We found our identity as peace makers. Our teaching and practise shifted. As followers of Jesus we learnt to respond to crisis: firstly through short term aid; and then through long term peacebuilding projects designed to heal and restore relationships in fractured and broken communities. Now CFM employs more than 230 staff accross our projects in the North.

Sponsor a Project

 Our commitment to peacebuilding and caring for ‘the least of these’ has taken many expressions across Northern Nigeria. Chances are you’ll be passionate about one or more of these projects. Why not sponsor a project or become an advocate.
