Primary school teacher Joan Barnabas has dedicated her life to preparing Nigerian children for a successful future, but she never thought that career would be enough to pull her out of poverty housing.
Mason Olusegun Akanni has spent his adult life building solid, safe homes for Nigerian families but never thought he would be able to build a decent home for his own family.
Both are among the dozen new homeowner partners in The Fuller Center’s Luvu Village just outside bustling Abuja, thanks to Fuller Center donors and financial support from Selavip International, a Belgian nonprofit that promotes decent housing in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
“With this latest group of dedications, our partners in Nigeria will have almost reached the 100-house mark!” Fuller Center President David Snell said. “That means that nearly 100 families have had their lives dramatically changed for the better by having a simple, decent place to call home. What a great tribute to the hard work of the Nigeria Fuller Center team and what a great legacy for the donors and volunteers who have made this possible!”
