Who we are?
WE WANT THIS GENERATION TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO MAKE A BETTER FUTURE
We are, at our heart, a group of passionate people who care about seeing real change in the world.
Fusion Nigeria is a not-for-profit Christian Youth and Community organisation who have a deep and ongoing commitment to developing resilience in individual lives. But we also believe that young lives need a strong community around them, so we work alongside passionate people and networks from all over Nigeria in a variety of national and locally focussed projects.
Since Fusion first started over 8 years ago in Nigeria, we have worked tirelessly to bring young people and their communities together with hope, determination and permission to make change.
Fusion works to be a source of illumination and transformation in our society and culture, so that each community within which Fusion operates has a chance of knowing and fulfilling its destiny in Nigeria and the world. We know this will be achieved when it is no longer self-interest and survival but justice, mercy and compassion that are the motivating forces in our culture and national life.
Fusion acknowledges the need to work in fellowship with all Kingdom-hearted people and movements around the world to see these goals realised. Hence our involved with the ‘Vote not fight ‘campaign and Nigeria’s musical legend 2baba (2face) Idibia.
Recognising the boundaries that are an integral part of all aspects of life.
The capacity to see life from the perspective of another.
Moving past our own self-absorption to love & care for others & the world around us.
Recognising that every person has priceless value and all have a gift that we are only able to receive when we see them as separate and unique individuals.
Recognising that we all have a contribution to make to society and that we will only be fully alive when we are free to exercise our unique gifts productively.
Fusion is a Christian youth and community organisation which emerged as a creative response to socially-at-risk young people in Australia in 1960. Today, Fusion has thousands of staff and volunteers in 18 teams and centres around Australia.
Fusion is also involved in 14 other countries including the United Kingdom, Greece, Albania, Canada, the Caribbean, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Indonesia, India and the South Asian region.
In working with the disadvantaged, we have observed growth in resilience among those who find purpose in the context of community. That resilience equips individuals and families to deal with life’s difficulties and produces capacity to care for others.
