We fight for justice for victims of crime and abuse of power
The CRIMEVICTIMS FOUNDATION NIGERIA (CRIVIFON) was established ostensibly to create a safe and nurturing environment for victims of crime and abuse of power following the United Nations Declaration of justice for victims of crime in 1989. With a passion and drive to emplace a lasting legacy on national development and care for the victims of crime, Crime Victims Foundation Nigeria (CRIVIFON) was registered in 1996 as a national non-governmental organization with charitable status..............
Crime comes in many ways such as murder, armed robbery and attack, arson, poisoning, stealing, cultism, kidnapping and more. The effect is often a disaster, leaving devastating injuries, sometimes claiming lives and properties. The traumatic agony of crime on victims deserves concern and assistance. Today's jet rate of crime and victimization often create fear in individuals as many could be victims. It could be you, 'me' or a dear one, anytime and anywhere. So who knows whose turn? Surely nobody knows.
The Crime Victims Foundation is committed to supporting victims of crime, relieve their distress and restore their spirit of self reliance as soon as possible.
The Foundation is always poised not to abandon victims of crime at such critical time. We do research on crime and work on its prevention in our society.
Every one is welcome to be part of this Foundation to do his/her best and make a positive difference on people whose lives have been shattered by crime without their own fault. As a member or volunteer of Crime Victims Foundation, there is a lot to gain in terms of free training, international exposure, professional opportunities etc. Therefore, we beckon on interested parties to be part of Crime Victims Foundation today.

In the face of funding needs and inability to access funds from international donors, our Foundation commenced innovative approaches to generate fund using our team of membership volunteers who have contributed in various ways to keep our activities going.
As a Nigerian non-profit organization, we explored various local fundraising strategies, to sustain our activities in the face of dire funding needs such as organizing community events, partnering with local businesses and corporations and concerned well meaning individuals for sponsorships. We seek for grants from local foundations, conducting crowd funding campaigns and engaging in awareness campaigns to attract local donations.
Building a strong online presence and leveraging social media platforms has helped us to reach a wider local audience and generated support that led to the passage of THE BILL FOR THE TREATMENT OF VICTIMS OF GUNSHOT AND ACCIDENT INTO AN ACT OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ASSENTED TO, BY THE PRESIDENT IN 2017.
