- About Cece Yara Foundation
The Cece Yara Foundation is an operational non-profit organization set up to promote Child Protection and prevent Child Sexual Abuse in Nigeria. Our mission is to strengthen child protection and prevent child sexual abuse in Nigeria.
We focus on preserving the joyfulness of an innocent childhood by preventing abuse and upholding the rights of the child as enshrined in the Nigerian Child Rights Act and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The Cece Yara Foundation was founded by Mrs. Bola Tinubu, a child advocate, mother and lawyer on a quest to prevent Child Sexual Abuse in Nigeria. Motivated by her belief that childhood should be a period of innocence, safety and joy for ALL children, she took the step to establish The Cece Yara Foundation when research reports estimated childhood sexual violence occurrence in Nigeria to be as high as one in four girls and one in ten boys.
The phrase 'Cece Yara' means Save The Child
