Fantsuam Foundation

Fantsuam Foundation was founded in 1996 by a group of Nigerian professionals in the UK diaspora who recognized the need to empower community members, particularly women, to find means of employment and income and meet their own development needs. Fantsuam Foundation is located in Bayanloco, a peri-urban slum of Kafanchan, Kaduna State, but our activities and our vision extend beyond Kafanchan toward the whole of Kaduna State. There are a number of development challenges faced by residents of Kaduna State, the priority being the reduction of poverty. The lack of jobs and income infrastructure including safe housing has also contributed to the poor health sector, and many residents do not have access to affordable and good health care facilities or services.
