PSJ’s work is addressing health, and broader social justice issues affecting poor rural communities in northern Nigeria, while also strengthening their capacities to advocate for their rights using innovative, practical and cost-effective approaches and solutions. PSJ’s work spans across 51 rural communities scattered across six local council areas (LGAs) in Niger and Kebbi States in northern Nigeria.

 

Through community outreaches, PSJ creates buy-in from the local community and mobilize communities to participate in education and health activities including disease screening such as HCT, antenatal care, infant welfare clinics, and economic strengthening activities to break the cycle of poverty and disease. The target groups are the most vulnerable groups in these marginalized communities; women, children, young people, sex workers and people living with HIV/AIDS.
