Our Team visited the Special Correctional Centre for Girls, Idi-Araba, Lagos State on Friday, 2nd of September 2022 to sensitize the children on their fundamental human rights under our My Rights, My Freedom project. During this sensitization program, we also carried out a legal clinic wherein the children with no legal representation spoke with our lawyers and their briefs were taken.

They expressed the challenges they had in understanding what was going on in court and shared stories of events that had happened in their lives that they didn't know were an infringement of their rights. Most of them saw these abuses as a norm and way of life because their abusers made it seem so.

We left the center perplexed by the sad stories we heard from these children but more importantly fulfilled that we could reorientate them and give them hope for a better tomorrow
