Child Protection

Violence against children occurs in homes, families, schools, communities and other places where children should feel safe. See how UNICEF is supporting the Government of Nigeria to protect children.

Our child protection teams work to keep children safe around the Borno State regardless of who they are or where they are from. We help children who are moving across borders, living on the streets or in IDP camps. We focus on children at heightened risk, including girls who are forced into child marriages, or young boys and girls who are forced into dangerous working conditions
