Where We Work


Over the past few years, the humanitarian situation in Nigeria has been increasingly deteriorating because the conflict between government forces and the Boko Haram armed group has intensified.

Recently published IOM data has identified over 1.8 million IDPs, the majority of which are located in Borno and Yobe states. Humanitarian actors estimate 17 million people affected by the conflict are food insecure, while 3 million young people have dropped out of the school system and 500,000 children suffer from severe malnutrition.

COOPI has been responding to this emergency in the States of Borno and Yobe  since July 2014. The program implemented focuses on food distribution, malnutrition prevention and care, education in emergency and protection of minors affected by the conflict.
