Astronomers Without Borders Nigeria

One People, One Sky

AWB Nigeria | WHO WE ARE

The Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) Nigeria, is a non-governmental organization with the aim of spreading Astronomy and its benefits throughout Nigeria. Our goals, activities and projects are done in affiliation with the Astronomers without Borders global community. Our global motto is ‘One People, One Sky.’

AWB Nigeria Network was birthed as a result of the prevailing lack of awareness about Astronomy in Nigeria. There was a lot of myths surrounding the subject of Astronomy in various communities, which at the time needed to be demystified through the understanding of the science behind some Astronomical occurrences such as solar eclipses among others.
