The Cece Yara Foundation, a top 12 finalist of the Google Impact Challenge has taken up the fight against child sexual abuse at a time when 25% of girls and 10% of boys in Nigeria experience sexual violence. Since its launch 18 months ago, the Foundation has set up a free 24-hour child helpline and state-of-the-art Child Advocacy Centre for children who have been sexually abused. The Cece Yara Teambelieves that protecting these children and creating safe spaces for them is the first step in protecting the next generation of Nigerians, to this end the Foundation has ensured the safety of children who may have otherwise faced sexual violence. In this period, the Child Advocates attended to 7,000 calls, provided 850 counselling sessions, filed 30 criminal cases in court and trained over 6,000 children on protecting themselves. An Adult Community Awareness Program has recently been set up in accordance with the belief that the onus is also on the adults to ensure protection of children within their communities.

According to the organisation’s Founder, Bola Tinubu, who was recently named as one of the BBC 100 Women Inspiring and Influential Women of 2018 – the main challenges are creating awareness in all Nigerian communities, and making healing and justice freely accessible to every child, no matter which community they reside.
