The alarming rate of children in Pressing need of care
Research shows that there is a daily increase of vulnerable children in our communities today.
As you woke up this morning, did you think about what you would eat, drink or wear without arriving at an answer? Or as simple as who to talk to, share your plans, smiles, pains, moods etc.? I know this might sound strange and amazing to most of us out there, but the truth remains that over 140 million children around the world are in pressing need of new place to call home, shelter and care; many are in search of this daily. Statistics shared by UNICEF shows that as of January 29th 2010 in Nigeria there are 17.5 million orphans and vulnerable children in the country .
The orphanage is one of the numerous social institutions that have emerged over the years to carter for their social needs of orphans who lack care givers. The number is on the increase and as a result of the moral decadence of the society; some parents are not able to cater for the needs of their children and sometimes abandon them due to cultural beliefs, poverty and natural disaster.
Most of us, if honest with ourselves will acknowledge that our lives were shaped at some point by someone who took the time and effort to build us. This might have been a parent, guardian, teacher, community leader, etc. Since 2012 AfriGrowth Foundation has chosen to support Orphans and Vulnerable children in Nigeria to see that these precious children are cared for, loved, fed, clothed and directed on a path for a hope-filled future that will bring about a change for the next generation.
