Introduction / History

The 6-8 million Fulani of north central Nigeria are primarily cattle herders in the Savannah regions. They generally migrate between two locations, one for dry season and one for rainy season. They highly esteem their cattle and migrate to find grass and to avoid insects harmful to their cattle. They live in small family units in "wuro's" (compounds) away from other families. They practice a mixture of traditional religion and Islam. A type of Islam destructive to their culture is rapidly spreading among them.


What are Their Needs?

They have very limited access to much needed medical and veterinary treatment. They have very little access to schools or churches. They need missionaries willing to live among them, learning the language well, and presenting the gospel as well as meeting some of their basic needs mentioned above.
