Stay Updated


Friends of Nigeria has a number of ways to communicate with its members. 

Our mainstay is the quarterly newsletter, which has been published now for over 20 years.  All back issues are available on the website, and an email blast announces when the latest edition has been published.  The newsletter is available in both hard copy (which is distributed by mail) and electronic form.  Images in the electronic version are in color while the printed version is black and white.  The newsletter includes a number of features, including book reviews, commentary on events in Nigeria, and member recollections about service in Nigeria.  We also publish a directory of the FON membership that is updated at two to three year intervals.

We have an annual meeting in conjunction with the NPCA's annual Peace Corps Connect meeting.  Narratives of past meetings are available elsewhere on this Stay Updated page.  Our meeting includes a summary of FON activities and accomplishments for the year, presentations by volunteers on their service in Nigeria, experts on Nigeria discussing current events, politics, or key issues (such as health care) in Nigeria, and an opportunity to renew friendships with other Nigeria RPCVs.

In addition to our website, we have a wiki ( that contains a compendium of facts, stories, pictures, and recollections of our service in Nigeria.  The wiki also contains information on each Nigeria training group.

Finally, we maintain a number of links to resources on the web about Nigeria, and many members publish blogs and stories that reflect their experiences as Peace Corps Volunteers in Nigeria.  You will find these links and blogs elsewhere on the FON website.
