City of Refuge - Friends' Club


It began with a thought in the mind of a country girl – the youth group called City of Refuge – Friends’ Club. Moved by the increasing vices, social injustice suffered by the poor, sense of purposelessness, the cult of mediocrity and moral decay among young people in her community, a country girl – without means, living in obscurity – dared the situation by inviting a group of young persons for a chat at the Pankshin Hilltop of Jos, Plateau, Nigeria. There a club was formed, which began meeting once a month for a retreat. In the retreat members unburdened themselves. They discussed things happening to them, their aspirations in life, struggles, fears, failures, dreams and hopes; encouraged and challenged one another accordingly.

Our Programmes


City of Refuge - Friends' Club is open to any community that is willing to have a City of Refuge outreach. Where ever there is a secondary school, the club can start a City of Refuge Special School. The very teachers in the secondary school can be asked to give an hour or two in a week for voluntary teaching
