Fashion For Jos is charity event under Fashion For the Nations – a Not-for-Profit Organization set up in 2010 to assist cities, towns, and villages in nations around the world through organizing fashion fundraising events.

On March 7th, 2010, a genocide happened in Jos, Nigeria, We are raising funds through the Fashion for Jos event to help the victims and survivors of that unfortunate incident.

Fashion for Jos will accomplish the following objectives:

– Raise funds for the Jos victims, especially women and children.
– Create more awareness about the genocide in Jos and Nigeria as a whole as a means vehicle to invoke an action towards change.
– Garner support from Nigerians in Diaspora and International Humanitarian Groups on how such incidents can be avoided.

Funds raised will be given to Nylah Group, Justice Development and Peace / Caritas (JDPC) Jos and the Nigerian Red Cross Society to support victims. The event marks the coming together of Nigerians in efforts to create a change in the lives of the men, women and children in Jos who are still crying in the aftermath of devastation.

Citizens are encouraged to visit the website at www.fashionforthenations.org and participate by donating their talents, skills, time and resources to make “Fashion For Jos” a great event.
