In northern Nigeria, displaced, returnee, and host populations constantly face challenges to their safety and dignity. Issues of safety, dignity and inclusion have had adverse effects on different populations; disrupting their ability to fully manage their daily activities and contribution to their household and community development.
Mercy Corps Nigeria's Integrated Protection Approach, highlights the concept that issues of safety, dignity, and inclusion crosscut many of the challenges that Nigerians face in their daily lives as they adjust to the complex emergency around them.
Protection is a central theme to Mercy Corps, with all of Mercy Corps’ projects and sectors in Nigeria contributing to a safer, more dignified, and inclusive environment. By being intentional about protection, Mercy Corps’ clients are more likely to fully access and use the services and facilities intended to improve their well-being.
