We are making progress. In Obanliku local government area in cross river state, Nigeria, we’ve worked with communities to change attitudes and beliefs about child marriage, ensuring young girls go to school instead. In Northwest Nigeria, we are working with faith leaders and survivors of violence to reduce stigma and change behaviour, resulting in a decrease in violence.
We don’t just help children out of dangerous situations, we work with and among communities to address the root causes of violence that often lead to abuse, exploitation, trafficking, and other forms of violence against children. Our community-led systems approach to ending violence, combined with Faith Clinic Foundation’s global It Takes a World to End Violence campaign is catalysing a global movement of people committed to keeping children safe from harm.
