Interview with Heart of the Matter tv
The United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reported in May 2005 that over 7.3 million Nigerian children of school age were not in schools. This ugly trend has its own social consequences, one of which is the spiralling proportion of street urchins in the major towns and cities of Nigeria.
Yemisi Wada is a trained lawyer but runs an organisation called ‘Haven for the Nigerian Child’ that provides support for under-privileged children and also children who live on the streets.
On HOTM she shares on how her organization tackles the problem, what role the law in Nigeria plays and more.
