Our Statement of Service

Think the CHILD…Think TODAY…Think the FUTURE™…According to Fredrick Douglass ‘It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.’ Therefore, it is our fundamental CREED and approach to Child Protection that Enlightenment is Superior to Enforcement™.  In view of the foregoing, we provide child protection solutions and services to individuals, families, local and international organizations through consulting, training programs, certifications, conferences, publications (soft and hard copies), audio-visual materials, and legal representation before and outside the courts of law.’

The Cause

We lead a Legal Enlightenment and Social Development movement, which aim is to stir up PRIVATE and PUBLIC WILL to SEEK and ATTAIN Personal and National Development and Transformation for the People and Nations of Africa, with an unrepentant commitment to the universal principles of human existence which God, the Maker of all things created to govern the affairs of man and this universe as we know it today, and the law as an instrument of SOCIAL CHANGE.

Upcoming Events

Our impact has been felt in so many institutions of learning at every level.

A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sit where you’re sitting, and when you’re gone; attend to those things, which are important. You may adopt all the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends on him.
