Education & Awareness

Our prevention framework uses culturally sensitive and age targeted education programs to increase the awareness and knowledge about child sexual abuse so that children and adults can recognize abuse and know how to respond.

Counselling & Support Services

Our counselling program offers our child-clients and their families support and therapy appropriate to their needs, which are accessed through our in-house counsellors as well as partner mental health professionals.

Justice & Law Enforcement

We support children and their families throughout the investigation and prosecution of a case, by providing information and support on legal rights, the legal process and possible outcomes. We also provide forensic interviewing to help in the investigative process.

About Us

The Cece Yara Foundation is a child-centred non-profit organisation to prevent child sexual abuse and provide access to care, information, protection and emergency intervention for children who are sexually abused or at risk, and their family. The Foundation provides the ideal response to children through a 24-hour free child telephone helpline and its child-friendly Child Advocacy Centre based in Lagos, which provides professional counselling, medical, legal and psycho-social support, as well as referral services.

The Adventures of Adaora

Author: Cece Yara

As a child her mother, Mrs. Joyce, has taught her early enough what private parts are, the need to always set boundaries and the danger of keeping unhealthy secrets. Would these be sufficient to protect her?
