Capacity Building & Community Resiliency
News and Announcements
Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the murder of 14 people and a police officer in northeast Nigeria. Pickup trucks filled with machine guns approached a security post manned by a militia group when suddenly they were attacked. Terrorism thrives in under-developed and impoverished areas because they are easier to control. Implementing capacity building assistance is a critical first step to help strengthen the country and free it from the grip of terrorists.
