Mrs Bolanle Ambode, wife of Lagos State Governor, has called for collaborative efforts between governments and non-governmental organisations to eradicate child trafficking, child labour, child abuse and fake orphanage homes in the country.

She made the call on Saturday in Lagos at the maiden National Conference of the Association of Orphanage and Homes Operators in Nigeria (ASOHON).

She stressed the need for NGOs to assist the government in regulating the operations of orphanage homes according to best practices and in conformity with the Child Rights Law.

Ambode commended members of ASOHON for organising the conference and urged them to promote awareness and respect for laws relating to rights of children.

She described care-giving for orphans and other challenged children as `a humanitarian task’ that comes with pain and personal sacrifice.

“You took it upon yourselves within limited available resources to keep and protect these vulnerable ones and reassure them that life is worth living after all.

”Your contributions to society can neither be measured nor quantified. It is my prayer that God, who delights in service to the less privileged, richly rewards you, ” she said.

In her remark, Mrs Dele George, National President of ASOHON, said the association was established to assist governments at all levels to add value and excellence to the social welfare system.

”ASOHON is out to collaborate and consolidate on the efforts of government to find lasting solution to the challenges confronting our orphanages and vulnerable children in our society.

”We are ready to partner with the government to make the issue of baby factories a thing of the past by ensuring that all homes register with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and are well monitored, ” she said.

George appealed to governments and well meaning Nigerians to assist orphanage homes in the area of funding for sake of the children.
