The 2017 International Day of the Girl Child is an annual UN observance day to be held on Wednesday October 11th.This day, we shall organise a Campaign/Walk with over 100 girls and other relevant Stakeholders against RAPE OF THE INNOCENT. The rate at which little girls (‘minors’)are raped is becoming alarming and something needs to be done about it. We intend to take the Advocacy walk against this ill development in Ikorodu Town Lagos on October 11th 2017 while that of Trans-Ekulu Enugu will be October 25th 2017. There will also be a workshop for the participants on how to guide against the Predators and ensure that they do not keep silent when the unexpected happens but should be willing to expose the abusers which will help the government implement the policies against the perpetrators of this ugly trend.
We need your support to stop the RAPE OF THE INNOCENT!
