Violence Against Children 



Films for UNICEF

In 2015/ 2016, MIND produced a range of films for UNICEF Nigeria in support of the Presidential Launch of the campaign End Violence Against Children by 2030. The films are being used as sensitisation and advocacy tools across Nigeria by UNICEF, federal and state governments, and civil society partners.

One out of every 4 girls and 1 out of every 10 boys in Nigeria is subjected to sexual violence before they turn 18. Most of them are left to cope alone. Watch and share this 3-min doc: How many more children will have to cope in silence?

Physical Violence

Half of Nigeria’s children are exposed to physical violence before they turn 18. The physical injuries may heal, but the inner wounds inflicted by violence can damage a child’s long-term development. Watch and share our 2-minute animation: Don't we want our children to flourish?

Survey Launch

The above films were viewed by thousands of people at the launch of Nigeria's nationwide survey on violence against children (International Conference Centre, Abuja, September, 2015), the Launch of the Presidential Campaign End Violence Against Children by 2030 (Presidential Villa, Abuja, December 2016) and six State Launches across the country.
