Campaigning

We need your help if we are to put an end to the abuse of innocent children in the Niger Delta.  To do this, we’d be delighted if you could support our Prevent Abuse of Children Today (PACT) campaign. PACT is a response to the widespread abuses of children's rights that take place due to the belief in so-called child 'witches'. We want to put a stop to this practice and can only hope to do so with your full support.pact_no_strap_sm

We aim to build a vibrant and vocal coalition of individuals, churches and organisations who are willing to stand up and be counted in the fight to save and transform the lives of innocent children. Together we have the power to stamp out these harmful traditional practices and bring lasting hope to the lives of children in Nigeria and beyond. So far, PACT has already been phenomenally successful. Achievements include:

  • Successfully lobbying the Akwa Ibom State Government to enact the Child Rights Act and making it illegal to brand children as 'witches'.
  • Sensitising hundreds of thousands of people in Nigeria about the ills of child abuse linked to the belief in witchcraft.
  • Placing the issue of child ‘witches’ on the agendas of various governments and agencies around the world including the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

 

Our supporters have more power than they often realise. We believe that, together, we can maintain the momentum behind PACT and create a brighter future for the children of the Niger Delta. We have a website specifically dedicated to PACT. Here you can sign our pact, find template letters to write, download resources, read our latest news and much more. Please visit www.makeapact.org to find out what a difference you can make.
