One of the many HIV/AIDS orphans in the country. This young boy was rejected by his family after the death of his parents. He is also HIV positive

The protection and participation programme aims at advocating and providing technical support to the Government in order to ensure Nigeria meets the obligations of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The adoption of the Child Rights Act in 2003 at Federal level was an important achievement in the realisation of children’s rights in Nigeria. UNICEF Nigeria encourages all 36 States to pass and implement the Act and address the situations of children in vulnerable and difficult circumstances.
