The need
A 2006 UNICEF report revealed that there were
7 million orphans in Nigeria and nearly 2 million of them were orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

In the Delta area of Nigeria children as young as two live on the streets because their parents have accused them of being witches. Others, including children born to HIV positive mothers, are abandoned because their parents can’t cope.

These are overwhelming numbers, but Lighthouse Trust International tackles these problems head-on by providing care and support to orphans, motherless children and street children.

We can’t help them all, but we can make a difference to some!

Where we operate
We operate primarily in Nigeria. We currently support children and families in Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Kaduna, and Benue states of Nigeria.

Lighthouse is registered with Companies House as a charitable organization (registration number 6624728).
