CHERISH NIGERIA DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION

Cherish Nigeria Development Foundation is a registered non-profit, non-governmental organization wholly dedicated to selflessly serving humanity with a focus on Northern Nigeria. Established in 2005, it has outgrown the challenges of its nascent days and is now regionally and globally acknowledged as an organization focused on community interventions with an aim to create autonomy and self-confidence among the supported communities and groups.

Formally known as Ciroma Shehu Ruma Foundation, CNDF rebranded itself to Cherish Nigeria Development Foundation based on the feedback from consultations with stakeholders. Thus, the ‘cherish’ was derived from Ciroma Shehu Ruma – A name chosen in honour of the Patriarch of the Ruma family who believed that community development was the cornerstone of sustainable development.

While upholding the notion that community development programmes must have a sustainable and realistic impact on people, CNDF recognises that its project must stand out clearly as replicable models with a high potential for replication in other parts of Northern Nigeria and beyond. This is why it utilizes the SHE model in its fight against under development.

Its activites must cater to the
Social Welfare
Health and
Education
Of the people and communities it works in.
