Stop It: A Young Humanistas Network-Nigeria and Child Rights and Rehabilitation Network, Akwa-Ibom Project
The goal of this project, which was kicked off on 8th April, 2009, is to create massive awareness of the pervasive stigma in the name of child-witch hunting going on in different part of Nigeria, most especially in Eket area of Akwa-Ibom State and Esan part of Edo State, Nigeria. This we have been doing through press conferences and participation at the human right fora like the Human Right Vanguards seminar on Child Rights, April 8-10, Lagos, Nigeria.

As part of the Stop Project we have also engaged notable personalities like traditional rulers in the affected area, among other local leaders in discourse to get their views and use same in an advocacy campaigns on local radio that we hope to run once we are able to secure funds for the 1 minute over three months advert.

There is no doubt that sports help in developing children physically, emotionally, mentally and socially. Hence the decision of the Young Humanistas Network to participate and support the CRARN inter-sports competition, as part of the STOP PROJECT, by instituting a HUMANIST HOUSE, which the group will be supporting annually to compete in sports competitions like athletics, football, among others with other HOUSES like Bristow Helicopters, First City Monumental Bank, Stepping Stones, etc.

So far, it’s been success story.
