The Salvation Army has a proven track record that goes back more than 90 years in Nigeria, and more than 150 years internationally. It is now one of the world’s largest providers of social services.
The Salvation Army helps one person at a time, believing that each person is infinitely valuable and equally worthy.
The Salvation Army is present in over 200 communities across Nigeria and more than 130 countries around the world, offering services in 175 different languages. When disaster strikes, the Army is often already there living in the community and is able to provide immediate aid and relief in the most culturally relevant way. It also means the Army will still be there long after the immediate needs have been met.
As an international Christian church that welcomes everyone, The Salvation Army’s faith motivates its social programs. Donations from the public at large, which includes money from individuals, foundations, corporations and all levels of government, are used for community and social service programs.
The Salvation Army works through a large quasi-military organizational model, that includes volunteers, committed members of The Salvation Army, its officers and staff. There is no organization that can more readily mobilize itself where and when the need is greatest.
The Salvation Army has been recognized with the highest level of excellence in ethical fundraising and financial accountability that Nigerians can trust. The Salvation Army is now one of just over 150 charities in Nigeria that has earned Emergency Response Program accreditation.
The Salvation Army is managing its administrative and fundraising costs in a reasonable manner given the size and scope of the organization, in order to provide the best programs and services that deliver transformative outcomes for the people we serve.
All funds donated to The Salvation Army are used by The Salvation Army, or agencies of which it is a member.
Social and community service programs focus on nurturing the capacities, skills and strengths of individuals rather than just giving them a hand out.
All social and community services are equally available without discrimination.
