The project is being run in 5 target states – FCT, Kogi, Edo, Benue and Nasarawa states respectively.


SMILE States


All OVC in the states will benefit from improved state-level capacity; however SMILE will target at least 50% of the LGAs per state (Benue-12, Kogi-11, Nassarawa-7, Edo-9 and FCT-3) for direct service delivery from CSOs. Population and OVC prevalence will drive selection of target LGAs.
