At UNICEF, we believe one child denied his or her right to learn is one too many. Two hundred and sixty-three million is beyond imaginable. Read more »

Chibok Girls: Bring Back Their Childhood

Posted by: Farah Malek-Bakouche May 1, 2018

In 2014, the world witnessed the abduction of more than 276 school girls taken from their school in the town of Chibok, in northeastern Nigeria, triggering a massive solidarity movement on social media with celebrities calling on the governments of the world to act. We wanted to bring them back, to live their childhood as any child - any girl - should be entitled to. Yet, more than four years later, more than 100 of the “Chibok girls” are still missing. Worse, 110 more girls were abducted, and five lost their lives, in February 2018 in Dapchi, northeast Nigeria. Read more »
