ChildVoice’s 2018 Annual Report examines our growing efforts to expand our impact into Ugandan, South Sudanese, and Nigerian refugee communities as we continue to build upon the solid foundations we’ve laid at the Lukome Center and develop sustainable solutions to help displaced and war-affected girls recover and thrive.
This past December 10th, Freedom Power Chapel of Yola, Nigeria joined hands with ChildVoice to provide much-needed food relief to internally displaced persons (IDPs) at Pare Camp in the northeastern state of Adamawa in Nigeria. . .
When Florence first arrived at Uganda's Imvepi Refugee Settlement, having traveled on foot from South Sudan, she clearly was traumatized. A lifelong orphan, in 2017 she had joined a group of girls who were desperate to flee the violence of civil war in South Sudan.
This fall, ChildVoice is launching its Girl Empowerment Centers in the IDP camps of Nigeria with the hope of reaching adolescent refugee girls suffering from isolation and despair. In order to enroll 1,000 girls in our Nigeria Empowerment Centers this fall, we urgently need your help today!
Imagine being forced to flee your village because of horrific attacks by Boko Haram insurgents, who kill and maim indiscriminately. Tragically, that is the reality for thousands of young girls who now live in the relative security of IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps in northeast Nigeria. However, their struggle is not over. In some cases, it has just begun.
Imagine being born into severe poverty, the child of an adolescent girl who was herself a victim of war and violence. Add to that the challenges and stigma of living with a major physical disability, and you get some idea of the obstacles faced by these three children of former ChildVoice students that we’d like to tell you about.
