WorldRemit What does home mean to you?

Home – a simple four-letter word. Yet everyone has their own ideas of what it means.

What is home? Pretty much everything, it turns out.

We are WorldRemit, the digital money transfer service, and we asked Nigerians all over the world about the things that made them think of home.

We wanted to find out how Nigerians feel about where they come from, and what keeps them in touch with the places they are now. We received countless answers and photos – and they couldn’t have been more different.

Home – a simple four-letter word. Yet everyone has their own ideas of what it means.

Sometimes it was the sounds, smells and tastes of where you came from.

But the most common answer of all was family. A photo of your grandparents – comfort, joy and memories of a life shared.

My home is my kids”, says one customer. Family reminds us of home, a place where we are among kin."

But home doesn’t have to be Lagos or Ibadan. For many of our customers living abroad, Nigeria isn’t the only place on their mind.

Home is playing soccer in the U.S, eating ice cream in the UK, and getting used to the snow and the cold in Switzerland.

When life couldn’t be more different from Sokoto or Kaduna, Nigerians everywhere have found new places they call home.

If you’ve moved overseas, staying in touch with friends and family at home is important – and WorldRemit helps you feel closer to home.
