SASCI: CHANGING THE WAY ABUSED CHILDREN ARE TREATED

The need to protect minors and children today has become more imperative, considering the rising cases of child abuses, domestic violence, wards maltreatment and the rampant cases of “househelps” being enslaved by their madams in the country. The fight against these social vices has deepened with the coming of a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as Save And Secure the Child Initiative (SASCI), which has been doing a lot of intervention works. The NGO is slated to be launched formally by the ending of September across states of the federation.

Speaking to the media, Kene Ikwunne, The founder of Save And Secure The Child Initiative (SASCI), said that they are going to work in tandem with global best practices that protects the children such as The Convention on the Rights of the Child, which in a nutshell is a “Legal Ban On Violence Against Chldren.” These legal bans include corporal punishment, harmful traditional practices, early and forced marriages, female genital mutilation, honour crimes and sexual violence. Also, Kene stated that the NGO will also work with local laws such as Section 21 of the Nigerian Constitution (Criminal Code).

According to UNICEF, six out of ten children experience some forms of abuse or the other ranging from emotional, physical and most alarming is sexual abuse. A situation that the NGO is hoping to intervene.
On what made him to float such an NGO, Kene stated “I think I am focusing into children because they are the future of tomorrow. The first law of nature is self-preservation, this means there should be need to survive. We have to ensure that our kids are taken good care of in line with our cultural mandate not global because if we fail to take care of these kids, it means that we are treading in a perilous path where our survival as a people, culture and community would be in jeopardy. I also have a very soft spot for children. Secondly, children are helpless and no voice because of their tenderness.

Thirdly, the rate of child abuse in our society today is alarming. The ones that are scattered all over the social media platforms is just few noted cases, lots of cases were never reported or not even captured at all.”
On what the NGO has achieved and its mission, Kene added that “We have 2020 Roadmap for the NGO. We are on the way to building the largest community of volunteers in Nigeria, this is just to raise a strong and deafening voice for the Nigeria child. We are already presence in 21 states including the FCT Abuja. Handling child abuse cases already. Like the child in Kaduna that was maltreated by a deaconess, has been taking up by this initiative for her school bills to university level, done through our volunteer based outside Nigeria. So as this last quarter of the year elapse, Nigeria will see a massive campaign and strong voice Against Child Abuse.”

Founder , Kene

On collaboration he said that the organisation are partnering with critical stakeholders in various tiers of government such as legislative and executive arms, the state government and most importantly the local government where they also believe that their interventions and effects would be cascaded, Hear him,” We are looking at first, SAVE the Nigeria child, which has to do with stopping all manner of abuse. Secondly, SECURE the child, which has to do with total child care and its relations. Hence our name is SAFE AND SECURE THE CHILD INITIATIVE. Definitely we shall be working with all level of governments to deliver on this mandate. Federal and state governments, and mostly the ministry of women affair, who’s this responsibility fall women affair, who’s this responsibility fall on their laps, the National Assembly and state assemblies for the laws that will further the proper care and protection of the Nigeria children”, Kene Ikwunne concluded.

Save And Secure the Child Initiative is a platform for anyone that have passion for children can freely demonstrate that have plan as part of her social cooperate responsibilities to care for children can partner with. They are open to welcome any Nigerian who shares the same passion for the Nigeria child. They’re our operations will be based on world best practices such as such as RECOGNIZE the Child Abuse, RESPOND to The Child Abuse and REPORT the Child Abuse.
