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 Centres based in Lagos and Abuja, which provide professional counselling, medical, legal, shelter, forensic interviewing, and psycho-social support, as well as referral services.

Since 2016, my team and I have committed to preventing abuse, supporting survivors, prioritizing their voices and experiences, helping them heal from the trauma of abuse, and obtaining justice. All for free.

We work to create a culture that supports and empowers through prevention and education programs, improving access to support services, and holding perpetrators accountable. By using evidence-based approaches in our work and collaborating with other organizations and experts in the field we hope to create a future in which every child will access quality mental and physical health care, support, and justice; free from further exploitation.

Thank you for your interest in our work and for stopping by at our page. It is my utmost desire that you would partner with us in our commitment to ensure the safety of every Nigerian child.
