To continue on the gains on Everyone Campaign, an initiative of Save the Children – an international non-governmental organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries to ensure that no child under the age of 5 dies from preventable causes, and that public attitudes will not tolerate a return to high levels of child deaths, has launched a campaign that will focus on reaching excluded children(refugees, the girl child, children living with disabilities, children in hard to reach areas, and street children.
According to the initiative, its ambition is for every Nigerian child to survive and thrive and for a country in which every child is able to develop up to his or her full potential by 2030 as it is in total agreement with Nigerian Government ambition for children.
The program was launched on Tuesday April 26th, 2016 at Ladi Kwali Hall, Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Abuja by 12noon.
The highlight of the launch was the unveiling of the new campaign mantra by Save the Children celebrity ambassadors and other critical stakeholders.
There was also great musical performances and other artistic performances with child ambassadors lending their voices to the campaign, ensuring that every child survives, thrives and is protected; an ambitious job which Save the Children alone cannot do without the buy-in of our governments, donor partners and members of the organized business sector.
“We are therefore clinging on your support and commitment in taking our new campaign forward. We believe that the time is NOW for all hands to be on deck in playing an important role in the realization of the development vision of our country and in shaping the lives of our future generation.”
