My husband is Nigerian he has lived out of the country for twenty years but would like to travel to see his family I am an american and I am white he is telling me it is very dangerous for me to go what precautions can I take and in today's day and age is it still so dangerous for a white women we would be traveling to Aba state. Please advise.
I am a teacher of geography (here in the UK) and looking to return to Lagos this summer on a self funded volunteer placement. I will be volunteering with a christian aid partner charity that are based in the UK, I tend go every summer so this will not be a new experience for me.
I will be volunteering in a community summer school as a teacher. The school is located on Lagos mainland which is quite bustling but its pretty safe. The school specialise in accommodating local children who are orphaned and vulnerable.
The school are in need of volunteers for the summer school project 2014, so when I return this summer i would like one or two fellow Londoners to tag along (well you don't have to be from London, anywhere in the UK is fine). I'm not bothered about age or race as long as your aged 21+ and a working professional, students are fine too as i first volunteered with them while an undergraduate. If you are of Nigerian heritage then that's a bonus but it is not mandatory.
I would also encourage those who have a negative view of Nigeria to consider the trip; you will be pleasantly surprised, or those of you that just want to volunteer abroad in a contrasting setting, or to give something back to the needy in community. (btw employers love this kind of thing so it will look great on your CV)
So if you are interested or have any questions please reply to the thread or send me a message.
The placement duration 4 weeks and commences 26/07/14
