Child Help In Leadership, Democracy, Rights and Education in Nigeria (CHILDREN) Project is a developmental, child-right, non-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Nigeria. It takes special interest in matters that concern women. This is in realization of the fact that any deprivation and brutality meted on woman impacts directly on children. It was established in 1994 as a response to the continual degeneracy in socio moral and academic standard of the Nigerian child.
To get all Nigerian citizens educated within the shortest possible time.
Elimination of all inhibitions that come between any child and good basic education in Nigeria.
To use research finding as advocacy tool to protect the conventional Rights of the Child and sensitize the society in general and various governments and other policy makers in particular, on the state of the child in Nigeria with a view to helping them with moral, intellectual as well as technical supports to play their individual and collective roles towards making adequate provisions that will make child education in Nigeria gender-balanced, equitable, adequate, qualitative, functional, accessible, affordable, holistic and worthwhile.
