SaffronSDGF ‘Safeguarding the Nigerian Child (SNC) Initiative congratulates His Excellency Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, of Lagos State for setting a precedence by issuing the Executive Order for the ‘Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Programme’!! This policy now makes it mandatory for all ministries, departments and agencies, including schools and the police, to develop and adopt a ‘Child Focused Agenda’ in implementing the ‘Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
As a member of the Lagos State Sub-Committee for Child Protection and Children’s Rights, SaffronSDGF advocated that the ‘Safeguarding Agenda’ be enshrined in the newly completed ‘Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy’ for the state. We also recommended in the policy, that all schools have a Designated Safeguarding Officer amongst other deliverables in the policy.
SaffronSDGF (SNC) therefore continues to pledge its commitment to working in partnership with government, private and non-governmental agencies, including international organisations to develop, deliver, quality, positive and life changing outcomes for ‘Every Nigerian Child’ globally!
Raising Standards, Protecting Children, Improving Lives for Better Outcomes.
