About Us


Building Bridges for Youth Initiative (BBFYI) is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 and incorporated in 2018 (CAC/IT/NO 119011) with an office in Abuja, Nigeria. Prior to our official incorporation, we had engaged in the reintegration of deported friends and individuals. We have assisted persons facing deportation as well as those who were deported to Nigeria from Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, Kenya, and Ghana in the past

BBFYI saw the need for services that can help such individuals adjust positively to deportation. Given our African roots, we are concerned primarily about the impact of returns and repatriation on Nigerian and African nationals as well as the likely positive impacts that these displaced persons can have on Nigeria’s development when properly equipped. We were inspired to start BBFYI, so as to help them plan for a better tomorrow by focusing on the need to improve their own lives as well as the need to contribute to the development of their home countries

We help fill gaps in knowledge about realities in the desired country of destination and the dangers of irregular migration such as the risks of trafficking, abuse, organ harvesting, and exploitation
