Empower to Prevent Abuse: Safe Kids Awareness and Prevention Program (SKAP) Making an Impact

Cece Yara's Safe Kids Awareness and Prevention Program (SKAP) is making a difference, one school at a time. During this reporting window, we had the privilege of empowering over 1000 children aged 5 to 8 at various schools with vital knowledge about their bodies and safety measures to prevent abuse. Some of these schools include Father Sadiku Memorial Nursery and Primary School, Model Primary School, Ajegunle, St Mary’s Nursery and Primary School, Goriola Nursery and Primary School etc. We are proud to play a part in equipping these children with the essential tools needed to protect themselves. With this knowledge imparted, the children are empowered to safeguard their well-being and speak out against abuse.

 

Breaking New Ground in Africa's Fight Against Child Abuse

Cece Yara Child Advocacy Centre and Zero Abuse Project, USA, joined forces to pioneer the revolutionary ChildFirst Forensic Interview Training. 30 champions from Nigeria's criminal justice system have emerged equipped with crucial skills to conduct sensitive interviews with child abuse survivors. This landmark collaboration marks a monumental step forward in safeguarding our children and delivering justice where it's needed most. Together, we are rewriting the narrative and setting the standard for global child protection efforts.
