Nigeria has a quarter of Africa’s extreme poor, with about 100 million of a population of 158 million living on less than £1 a day.

More than 100 women die every day from complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Over 2,000 children under 5 die every day from preventable diseases and 8.5 million children do not go to school (the most of any country in the world).

Unless progress is made in Nigeria, the MDGs will not be met in Africa.

DFID funds many organisations who are working to end poverty through open competition. Find out more about how our funding schemes work and the application processes.
