save 1500 children from sexual abuse in Ejigbo

by Teens Economic and SociaL development Foundation


Children are traumatized by sexual abuse which is on the increase in Ejigbo community, Lagos Nigeria. Educating the children on body safety and developing policies will prevent child sexual abuse and teenage pregnancy. our children will be sane to remain in school and live a purposeful life.

total goal


1 out of 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys in Nigeria had experienced sexual abuse before the age of 18 as reported by UNICEF. There is an alarming rate of child molestation and teenage pregnancy as a result of rape and abuse in the community.Most of the girls drop out of school and become burden on their parents. some younger children who experience abuse are traumatized and most times loose interest in education and consequently no direction and purpose in life.


This education will give children information on how to protect themselves and watch each other while using the self awareness book to be given to them to act as a day to day guideline to checkmate any kind of abuse from perpetrators. The teachers, care givers, school management and parents will be trained on prevention techniques, how to identify signs of abuse and what to do when they notice any form of abuse on children. We will train the school management to develop child safety policies.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide safety measures to 1500 children helping them prevent sexual abuse on themselves, reduce teenage pregnancy and enable them to focus on their education and life purpose, reduce poverty and bring peace in the families and community.
