New project promotes the adoption of minors

29 May 2015, 19:00

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 life.

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. ­
