Smile and Shine Children’s Foundation vision is to be in the forefront of the fight against Child Sexual Abuse and to make Nigeria the safest place in the world to raise a child.
Our mission reflects our vision. We seek to change society’s perspectives, beliefs and response to child sexual abuse, offer support and care to victims and their families and combat child sexual abuse.
In support of our vision and mission, we have developed and adopted a 3 pier operational system that inform and inspire how we do what we do:
We organize age-appropriate and evidence-based personal safety training programs for the Nigerian child in schools and communities.
Training adults to become fully aware and fully motivated to protect the Nigerian children from sexual abuse,
Making sure community and government systems engage effectively and respond at all times in the best interests of the child.
