TOUCH NIGERIA was founded on 18th October 2011 by Harriet Gore, a Nigerian-born barrister
who lives and works in London. Founded with the aim of putting into practice the
belief that positive change is possible through the practice of LOVE, TOUCH NIGERIA
aims to touch the conscience of every Nigerian and put patriotism and love at the
forefront of thoughts, deeds, behaviour and individual conduct. Members are united
by a common passion for what they can do for Nigeria and bear the title “TorchBearers”.
Membership is open to every friend of Nigeria regardless of background. The group
believes that each and every citizen of Nigeria has a duty to make Nigeria work.
TOUCH NIGERIA reminds people that Nigeria is a family of about 167 million demanding
children and its needs are diverse, complicated and cannot be resolved overnight
with a magic wand. Change is only possible with perseverance, hard-work, love, understanding,
contribution of ideas and solutions and belief in ONE NIGERIA.
We are of the view that constructive criticism is necessary in a democratic society
but a culture of pointing accusing fingers at the government officials achieves little
because the Nigerian populace is as guilty as those officials whom they criticise.
Feed Nigeria love.
