Nigerian President: Bring Back Our Girls from Forced Child Marriage

Reports of more than 200 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls have made headlines worldwide, and the girls are reportedly being sold into modern slavery for as little as $12.1

But there is a solution.

Experts believe that if the Nigerian Government acts immediately and uses every resource at its disposal, it can locate the girls and return them to their families.

However for this to happen they need to know that the world is watching – and waiting. Help save more than 200 schoolgirls from Forced Child Marriage – tell Nigerian President Jonathan to take all possible actions to locate and rescue the girls and prevent further attacks.

Each day the schoolgirls are held captive, the risk of them falling victim to Forced Child Marriage increases. By sending a strong, united message to Nigeria’s President today, we can help ensure his Government spares no effort until the girls are rescued and back with their families.

#BringBackOurGirls

  • October 2016: Boko Haram released 21 school girls abducted in Chibok. However, the group are still holding approximately 190 Nigerian girls and there are concerns that the girls are being forced into slavery and are being brainwashed to partake in Boko Haram’s practices and some of the men have even killed girls in their villages.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
