Cece Yara FoundationEti-Osa, Lagos
The Cece Yara Foundation was founded by Mrs Bola Tinubu, a child advocate, mother and lawyer on a quest to prevent Child Sexual Abuse in Nigeria. The phrase 'Cece Yara' means "Save The Child" Motivated by her belief that childhood should be a period of innocence, safety and joy for ALL children, she took the step to establish The Cece Yara Foundation when research reports estimated childhood sexual violence occurring in Nigeria to be as high as one in four girls and one in ten boys.
