Who we are

About us

The Truth Alliance is a new network of civil society organisation’s across both Nigeria and Niger who have come together to expose the truth behind how violent and extremist groups draw young people into their ranks.

We believe the time has come to tell the truth about the traps, the tricks, the lies and the deceit that are used to draw them in.

We want people to think for themselves about this truth, to realise if it’s too good to be true, it usually is.

Our campaign is about the real stories of real people who survived these groups and our campaign tells those stories through the voices of friends and family.

Join us, help us and stop others from falling for the trap.

Week after week we will add to the stories and reveal more and more from those who were there, from those whose who once fell for the trap.
