OUR WORK – Solving the problem through Community Enlightenment Outreaches and Campaigns

This aspect of our programmes is aimed at solving the problem (Child witch branding and stigmatization) from the root (ignorance and lack of proper education) which is more prevalent in the rural communities. To carry out these campaigns, we map out and visit rural communities with high prevalent rates of child witch branding and stigmatization, to interact with the locals on the issue.

Aniefiok at Rescue and now

The story of Aniefiok and Abia

Anefiok and Abia’s mother was outcasted by the local community because of witchcraft accusations. She was very young and she was alone with 3 little boys. Anefiok, Abia and their younger brother, an infant.

The mother and 3 boys struggled to survive. Everyday, Anefiok and Abia had to beg for food on the street because the mother did not work. She was very sick and could hardly take care of their baby brother. They had no house to stay, so they lived under some bushes. The situation was pathetic.
