FAMU Project
An innovative and collaborative project between 2 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) called Healing Hands Orphanages and Outreach Foundation (HHOOF) in Nigeria and Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB) in the U.K.

There is an increasing number of Nigerian children in the UK, who are separated from their families in Nigeria as a result of trafficking, abduction, conflict, migration, divorce and asylum. The FAMU project aims to improve outcomes for many Nigerian children, who find themselves at risk in the UK. This project will advocate for these vulnerable children and ensure that their best interests are taken into account.

Objectives of the project include:
  • Social work assessments of nuclear and extended family members in Nigeria, aiming to reunite Nigerian children under the care of the UK Social Services department in a loving and caring home.
  • Offer support in child protection investigations.
  • Offer specialist support in child trafficking cases involving Nigeria.
  • Offer counseling and rehabilitation support to the child in Nigeria, to ensure smooth integration with their family in Nigeria.
