Short description:
Fantsuam Foundation was founded in 1996 by a group of Nigerian professionals in the UK diaspora who recognized the need to empower community members, particularly women, to find means of employment and income and meet their own development needs. Working in 50 communities across 7 Local Government areas in Kaduna State, close to 4,500 individuals benefit from Fantsuam’s services every year. As at April 2013, over 200,000 people will have benefited either directly or indirectly from Fantsuam Foundation’s activities since it was established in Bayanloco in 2001.


MISSION: To eliminate poverty and disadvantage in Kaduna State through integrated development programs.
