PROJECT EXECUTING AGENCY: CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES-UNITED STATES CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS
Catholic Relief Services – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (CRS) is an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in over 99 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons based on need, regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality. CRS has operated in Nigeria since the year 2000 and has implemented different projects in 19 states of the federation.
For over nine years, the Lake Chad Basin (LCB) crisis – impacting Northeast (NE) Nigeria, the Lake Region of Chad, the Region of Diffa in Niger, and the far North Region of Cameroon – has exacerbated existing vulnerabilities, torn apart communities and families, constrained livelihood opportunities, destroyed infrastructure, and dismantled local government’s ability to respond to the needs of its citizens. To address the myriad of inter-related and chronic factors inhibiting the recovery of resilient, rebuilt communities in the L.C.B., CRS was awarded the two-year Stabilization and Reconciliation in the Lake Chad Region (STaR) Project, which is financed by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW (German Financial Cooperation).
