Child abuse is not peculiar to Nigeria alone, it is a global issue. In the recent past, violence such as torture, kidnapping, sexual harassment, child rape, corporal punishment, child labor and the likes are on the increase. This physical and emotional ill-treatment when left unaddressed ultimately culminate into actual or potential harm to the child’s health, development and/or dignity.
Child abuse no doubt is prevalent in Nigeria and inadequately report, it is also generally agreed that the girl child suffers more from these myriad of abuses. Rights to education and decent life are part of the fundamental rights of the girl child.
It is in view of the ugly picture painted above that some group of concerned citizens of Nigeria came together and conceived the idea of the VGC & VP foundation in other to contribute their quota in addressing the rights of the girl child and vulnerable people.
