Save the Children Nigeria recently joined over 70 countries around the globe to Launch it’s next priority campaign, “Every Last Child” in Nigeria with government dignitaries, religious leaders and Nigerian top celebrities in attendance.

The event which was powered by Delphino Entertainment, started with a press briefing with the Nigerian media, which was led by the Country Director, Ben Foot, the Global Deputy CEO of Save the Children International, Janti Soeripto, the Director for Advocacy and Campaigns David Olayemi and the Head of Child protection, Anne Kpason.

Save the Children Nigeria reported in its press release that discrimination in a major challenge faced by children all over the world. It was stated that “this discrimination is deadly”. Of the 16,000 children still dying each day from preventable causes, a disproportionate number are from these excluded groups.

The highlight of the event also featured a presentation from one of Nigeria’s Movie celebrities, Stephanie Linus. In her presentation she stated how her life changed through the empowerment she got as a child with education despite challenges she faced growing up as a child.

Aisha Bagudu, Wife of the Kebbi State Governor was joined by Save the Children Deputy CEO, Janti Soeripto and Country Director for Nigeria, Ben Foot in unveiling the “Every Last Child” campaign mantra.

The global Campaign report was also launched by the Chairman House Committee on appropriation at the National Assembly, Nigeria, Honorable Abdulmumin Jibrin with celebrities and representatives of government ministers making commitments to reach every last child.

“Evidence finds that 76% of girls in the North West region are married before the age of 18, compared with 10% in the South East. Eighty-two per cent of women aged 20–24 with no education were married by the age of 18, compared with 13% of women in the same age group who completed secondary education,” revealed the Nigeria spotlight report, also launched during the event.

Five Nigerian celebrities were branded Ambassadors of Save the Children by the Global Deputy CEO, Soeripto and Country Director, Ben Foot for Nigeria. They are, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Stephanie Okereke Linus, Banky Wellington, Timi Dakolo and Kemi Adetiba

The crowd at the event were thrown into excitement with the performance by Nigeria’s Music Icon, Timi Dakolo. A presentation was also made by children from Government Secondary School Gwagwalada to call the attention of government, media, religious leaders and other stakeholders towards the plight of children in Nigeria and the need to join hands until every last child is given the education, healthcare they need and also protected in line with the United Nation’s sustainable development goals.

The event came to a close with a performance by another Nigerian Musician, Efa with comedians thrilling the audience to its closure.
