Lagos - A new initiative aimed at protecting
the rights of children has been launched in Lagos.
Project Adopt a Child is the brainchild of Voice of
Divine Truth International Outreach, a non-governmental organisation.
Gregory Azemobor stated that Voice of Change was an
organisation that was committed to encouraging people to do be selfless in
The world has lost the consciousness of doing good.
Selfishness and greed is now being abetted and even celebrated in our
society, while virtue and integrity is being scoffed at .We are here to
encourage people all over the world to do good,² said Azemobor.

He said the new project was inspired by the desire to
see children lead meaningful lives.
The idea behind the project is to encourage men and
women everywhere to see every child on the streets as their own children.
We are encouraging adults to take full responsibility for the
wellbeing and upkeep of a child that is not their biological child, said Azemobor.
The aims of Project Adopt A Child are giving hope to
hopeless children, promote universal brotherhood, help to reduce poverty
and combat the menace of crime and insecurity ,as neglected children
easily become criminals and societal misfits.
The launch follows the commemoration of International
Children's Day earlier this week.
