Empowering Self Sustaining Communities

What is the NAMU Project?

"Namu" in the Hausa dialect means "ours". We are passionate about the power of community.

We believe that we all have things we each naturally do best. These strengths can be used to empower our communities. Working together can improve our productivity, health and well-being and social cohesion.

We are especially passionate about empowering women and children. We aim to support communities in provision of education, training or healthcare projects to enable individuals to develop their skills and generate sustainable solutions to some of the problems they face. 

The NAMU Project is a registered charity (CCN: 1182029)
