“We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.”
(Nelson Mandela)


Teaching has been the first activity of the Daughters of Charity in Nigeria and has lost none of its importance since. Over the years, we have provided high quality education to different target groups, tailor-made to their specific needs. From teaching in regular schools we have moved on to cater for people with various disabilities; people who are even more marginalized than others.

Currently we offer the following education services:

  •  Running and teaching in mainstream nursery, primary and secondary schools
  • Inclusive  schools
  • Services and schools for the hearing impaired
  • Services and schools for the intellectually impaired
  • Services and schools for people with physical disabilities

Special education does not get priority from government or even parents. In a hard society, children with disabilities are probably most stigmatized of all. Disability is still often seen as a punishment from God or as a sign of being possessed by the devil, and many disabled children are not getting any chances at all. In such an environment we do more than just teaching: we give these children a chance to survive and to have a meaningful life.


Empowerment of Marginalized persons

In all our works with marginalized individuals, empowerment is our goal. This is  achieved in various ways; through sensitization, focused group meeting with the target group, home visitation and community based rehabilitation, we create the awareness that people who are marginalized deserve to be loved and cared for by their own community.

Through our empowerment programmes, we offer education and skill development to children  and youngsters with various special needs, to equip some who are able to learn, with skills that will enable them to take up jobs and earn a living in the future. We also target marginalized women and offer according to individual needs, adult literacy programmes, catering, tailoring computer training courses and assistance to set up their own businesses to build their self esteem and to be self reliant.

How can I support the services of the Daughters of Charity?
Specifically, this means supporting someone to be empowered – to see, to hear, to speak or walk again, to feel well in themselves both physically and spiritually, to participate in education, in the society and to earn their own living...
