Child Abuse

Child abuse is the physical neglect, exploitation and trafficking of a child under10years especially in the hands of a parent or guardian.

The consequence of child maltreatment or abuse is that the affected child feels like an outcast, faces stigmatization, alongside lifelong damages to the physical, mental health and this can ultimately slow a country's economic and social development.

Children are the victims of abuse and should not be blamed.

Preventive ways Parent/Guardian should take to stop Child abuse are:

1. Understand your children

2. Watch your words

3. Keep your children healthy

4. Take a time out

5. Get control of yourself before you discipline a child.

Child Labor

Child Labor is depriving a child from not attaining to their potential and it will affect their mental development and expose them to harmful injuries.

Child Labor cannot be encourage in any way of life because it will prevent a child not attain to his goal in life it’s also affect development in our Society because a child that is properly empower cannot be useful to the society and the country at Large. Government should pass a decree into Law especially with the sub-Saharan region in Africa and a penalty for anyone who abuse the right of a child should face the law because that can create fear to society and lead to the birth control because of the consequences of child Labor

Meanwhile, a child should be given the opportunity to exhibit their talent and bring out their potential.

Conclusively, parents should live up to their expectation to give his/her child the required education that will enable their child to be useful to the society and to the country at large.

God’s gift to humanity is “LIFE”. And the harmful use of alcohol results in 3.3 million deaths each year (most of them men) across the globe, as less than half of the population (38.3%) actually drinks alcohol. Thereby depriving humanity off the gift of God

Mental illness is also called mental disorder, which is a health condition involving changes in your normal thinking, emotion or behavior.

Drug abuse leads to addiction, and other social effects like, exposure to violence/crime, exposure to community drunkenness, lacking a sense of belonging to one’s community/ low neighborhood cohesion etc., which affects the INDIVIDUAL (victim), FAMILY & the COMMUNITY.

CHALLENGES FACING THE GIRL CHILD

Most communities and families believe that the girl child has no value to their community or family. In some states and communities, women are subjected to forced marriages, low standard of living, and poor educational background.

The inequality and disadvantages that girls face stem from three interwoven causes: child marriage, child pregnancy, and child labor, all of which are exacerbated by poverty and have insidious consequences on the outcomes of these girls‘ lives.

HUMAN RIGHT AND GIRL CHILD

The human rights of children and the girl-child are explicitly set out in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely ratified human rights Treaty in History.

• Right to education of all levels

• Right to protection from all physical or mental abuse

• Right to information about healthy sexuality and reproduction etc.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate Change is one of the most complex issue facing the world today and it needs to be addressed. The rising temperature, global warming, rainfall pattern, extreme weather. This affects the environment at large.

The United Nation Framework convention on Climate Change has organized several convention on climate change inviting the world leaders to tackle Climate related issues. Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation (ASYARFS) was in attendance in line with the United Nation on the events on Climate issues.

All of the negative consequences increase their magnitude on Agriculture. For instance; Droughts create wildfires which in turn destroy the crops that are basically for consumption.

We need to stop these Climate issuesbecause we have the knowledge, power and ability to stop the effects of Climate Change.
