This project will provide crucial educational opportunities to 7,000+ young people displaced due to conflict.

Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) UK is a small charity, providing aid and advocacy for some of the most vulnerable communities around the world. HART works with in-country partner organisations and their communities to establish aid programmes in active conflict zones, post-conflict areas still devastated by war, and areas where people are marginalised, oppressed and exploited. For years, the Middle Belt states of Nigeria have suffered widespread ethnic violence, with Boko Haram responsible for more than 27,000 civilian deaths in Nigeria. Between March and September 2020 alone, more than 220 people were killed in southern Kaduna state. From October 2020 to mid-January 2021, of the attacks that were recorded in the media or by the Church, 134 civilians were killed and 37 abducted. Victims ranged from a 7-year-old child to a 25-year-old mother of one, to a 75-year-old man. Nobody’s life is spared. It is impossible to overstate the need for support in this region. After years of broken promises and a lack of adequate action by the Nigerian Government and the international community, the displaced citizens of Nigeria’s middle-belt region have given up hope of being able to live in safety and with dignity. Throughout 2021, HART is seeking to raise funds to support mobile education and healthcare units, as well as farming equipment and home repairment materials. PSJ is proud to partner with HART in its mission to fundraise for mobile education units to support the thousands of children currently displaced and scattered across host villages and internally displaced peoples (IDP) camps. Operating within 8 villages and 4 IDP camps, this project will provide crucial education opportunities to 7,000+ young people displaced due to conflict. To achieve this, we hope to raise £33,000 to purchase two mobile education vans which will travel to remote areas and serve the most vulnerable in areas of conflict. Being mobile, the vans will reach more people, be less vulnerable to attack and support local community requests for flexible education amid conflict. The project will include and support displaced teachers who are also residing in the host villages and IDP camps. Teachers are often especially hit during times of famine as they (like all IDPs) need to take time out of their day to find food and water. By providing a stipend, the project will temporarily relieve teachers of this urgent need and allow them to focus on teaching. The project will be implemented by HART’s longstanding partner, the Diocese of Jos. Since 2005, HART has been assisting the Diocese of Jos to delivery community embedded projects focused on IDP relief and resettlement, as well as education and healthcare provision. By supporting this project, you are helping to bring hope and new life to thousands of vulnerable people, and hopefully help build foundations for a more secure future.
