Displaced Women & Children Foundation (DWCF)

DWCF is an organisation which assists vulnerable groups through the promotion of peace and good governance in Nigeria.

Displaced Women and Children Foundation (DWCF) is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-profit organisation established in 2006, with the objective of promoting peace, quality of life, good governance, peace mediation and the development of youths in Nigeria. It was born out of the desire to bring succour to vulnerable groups, build community awareness, and advocate for peace.

In an effort towards this education process, DWCF established a free skill acquisition program. The establishment of this centre helped to train 664 women and support the educational pursuits of 1870 children.
