Rising Child Foundation to Commemorate Second Anniversary with Street Children

An increasing number of children are being forced to the streets as result of poverty, abuse, torture, rape abandonment or orphaned by AIDS. 

Hence, no prospect of an education and so no prospect of a job or providing for any children they may have in the future. According to UNICEF, the exact number of street children is unknown. However, some estimates have placed the figure as high as 100 million globally. ILO estimate that there are 30 million street children in Africa. 

This year's celebration tagged #SmallGestureBigDifference3.0 aims to ameliorate the condition of children living, begging and hawking in the streets of Ilorin by feeding them and showing them love. 

Similarly, Rising Child Foundation recognises that street children are vulnerable to sexual exploitations on a daily basis and would also sensitize the street children on Child Abuse Prevention, to know that their body is their own and no one has the right to hurt them or touch their private part.  

“Every child matters and no child should be subject to child abuse,” said Taibat Hussain, Founder and Executive Director Rising Child Foundation. Street children are at high risk of sexual abuse, physical exploitation, kidnap and even death. Unless we step in and do the little that we can, these children may have no future.

Rising Child Foundation is a not for profit making and non-governmental organization registered under the Corporate and Allied Matters Act 1990 and Law of Federation of Nigeria 2004 with registration number CAC/IT/NO 102869. 

The foundation is dedicated to ensuring that children in Nigeria acquire quality basic education, irrespective of gender, religion or social status so that they can realize their full potentials and thus contribute to the development of the nation.
