Newsletter and More


Friends of Nigeria has a number of ways to communicate with its members. Click on items in the panel to the left for more information.

Our mainstay is a quarterly newsletter that has been published for over 20 years. All back issues are available on the website, and an email blast to the membership 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, obituaries, and member recollections about service in Nigeria.

Please contact the newsletter editor (Peter Hansen, [email protected]) with suggestions, comments, ideas, and articles for the newsletter.

The Obituary Archive link to the left gives you access to information we have compiled, beginning with the Fall 2020 issue of the newsletter, on deceased members of Friends of Nigeria. Here you will find abbreviated obituaries published in individual issues of the newsletter beginning with the Fall 2020 issue, and a cumulative alphabetical listing of full obituaries beginning with the Fall 2020 issue. You will also find an index of obituaries published in the newsletter dating to the Winter 1998 issue.

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 FON meetings are available elsewhere on this 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.
