Who we are

Christian Solidarity Worldwide-Nigeria is a human rights organization, independent of any government or political persuasion, which works on behalf of those suffering for their faith and beliefs and promote religious liberty for all.

We are inspired by two articles:
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the right of all destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8-9)

Everybody has the right to freedom of thoughts, conscience and religion; this includes the freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom either alone or in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
(Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Article 18)
