Nigeria

Nigeria is situated on the Gulf of Guinea surrounded by Benin, Cameroon, Chad and Niger. With a population of over 211 million, it is home to three major tribes: Hausa-Fulani, Igbo and Yoruba.

Their unique landscape draws global attention, making the country a tourist destination for natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. In which you can observe the Northwestern African cheetah, West African lion, Dama gazelle, Western gorilla, and many other wildlife!

With the media age of 18.1 years, the country faces various challenges specifically within education and employment. However, Nigeria has one of the highest female literacy rates in Western Africa. The continued need to push education within the country, specifically within rural areas will allow the country to grow in substantial ways.

Nigerians are eager to educate themselves and continue on the path of sustainable development. Considered some of the happiest people in the world, they are known to be amicable, friendly and genuine people who want to see their country grow and succeed in this fast paced world.

It is important to note that Nigeria has one of the lowest life expectancies in the world at 55.75 years. This is mainly due to the air and water quality causing various diseases to emerge resulting in a low life expectancy. With only 19% of Nigerians having access to adequate drinking water, it is an ongoing problem and the importance of water is more important than ever as we see decreases in water quality throughout the globe.
