A Brief History About Us

Africa Faith & Justice Network—Nigeria was founded in collaboration with Africa Faith & Justice Network in Washington, DC. In May 2016, 67 Nigerian Catholic Reverend Sisters from various congregations across the country, representing diverse ministries, met in Abuja. The sisters reflected on the state of the nation and were moved by the systemic injustice that has perpetuated the poverty situation in Nigeria. Chosen to break the silence in the face of injustice, the sisters formed a network of Catholic women religious who would actively engage issues of human rights violations, especially those pertaining to women and children and the integrity of creation.
