The background and current situation

On April 18th 2011, post-election violence broke out in five of the communities where the NGO, Fantsuam Foundation operates, resulting in large scale loss of lives, livelihoods and properties. Fantsuam Foundation has significant microfinance activities and provided shelter, food and clothes for over 200 people on the first day of the violence. Women and children form the bulk of people displaced and traumatised by this event.

Following the post-election violence in April 2011 the  idea of rebuilding the razed market as a peace and reconciliation project emerged from discussions during our weekly UK-Nigeria online meetings. .

During the crisis the market was destroyed causing much hardship and loss of life to the local community. Many traders lost their livlihoods and their family's sole income. The concept is to bring together the Muslim and the Christianty communities who will work together to rebuild an improved Kafanchan Market.
