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.

HUNGER

Goal 2 of SDG of the United Nations;

Hunger is a craving or urgent need for food or a specific nutrient. It has now become a global problem. More than 820 million people in the world suffer from chronic hunger. It is a major contributing factor in premature death. Ending hunger and achieving food security remain major challenges for people everywhere. To end hunger we must tackle its root causes.We need to end hunger to ensure the Developing and Under-Developing Countries have access to the foods and livelihood opportunities needed to live securely and comfortably. We already possess the knowledge and the resources to end hunger, now we need to use our assets in the most effective way to make positive change.

While ending world hunger is of course not an easy task, and few people even with the best of intentions have the same approaches, it’s not idealistic to say that within our lifetime we absolutely can ensure that no person goes hungry again.

POVERTY

Poverty has been one of the greatest enemy in the 21st Century, every nation is faced with different level of poverty. Poverty is hunger. It is a state of being poor.

Developing, under-developed as well as developed nations live in poverty especially in developing areas of West and Sub-sahara Africa. Poverty can be tackled by the equal distribution of income and it must benefit all individuals, the poor masses should be educated in order to help the nations economic development, education teaches everyone about their right and by teaching the poor masses or setting up a skill acquisition for them, it will help in the growth and expansion of the country.

One way of reducing poverty is by educating poor people so that they can contribute to nation’s economic development. Education teaches the poor the growth and expansion of the country.

Poverty is a threat to human security, let’s all unite and eradicate it.

THE LESS PRIVILEDGE

Less privileged are people vulnerable to either physical (disables), financial (poor) problems. Numerous of the society are blessed financially. However, the less privileged have to live from hand to mouth. Less Privileged children do not have access to good health and education.

Taking care of the underprivileged could be carried out through diverse approaches, it is either through financial aid, provision of free health care services, free education, and the rest of them.

It is our duty as believers to bring joy and future to the less privileged among us. If every one of us can just add a little effort to help the less privileged or needy in our society, the world will be a better place for all.

Addiction or social mandate?

Towards a gender perspective in the dependence field, by María Paula Capote, Social Worker at the Chanaes Comprehensive Treatment Centre for Youth and Adults with Dual Pathology, managed by the Fundación Dianova Uruguay

Including gender as a category in intervention means keeping in mind throughout the process the variables entailed by being a woman in a given sociohistorical context or moment. Addiction intervention has focused mainly on the drug itself and not on the consumer’s characteristics, and what really guarantees success in the therapeutic process is being able to problematize and intervene in the relationship that the person has established with the substance.

We challenge the Federal Government to follow the steps of the United Nations, who has remarkably succeeded in re-awakening the consciousness of the entire human race on the need to create a new world order on issues concerning women, children, and other classes of people in the society.

We all are aware of the challenges still confronting women, especially in the Developed, Developing, and Underdeveloped countries.

Sexual harrassment should not be trivialized in the society at large.

We say “NO” to violence against women!!!

ASYARFS.

SANA provides recovering persons with opportunities to strengthen family and social networks. We offer them a range of support services to equip them to face the challenges in their daily lives and to succeed in things both big and small!

SANA Step-Up Centre (walk-in centre) was set up in 2015 where recovering persons and their family members can drop by for assistance.

The two centres – Step-Up @ Sengkang and Step-Up @ Jurong – enable recovering persons to intentionally “step up” to the challenges faced in their recovery and reintegration in a positive and supportive environment.

The Annual ‘Rise Above – Overcoming the Influence’ campaign was launched on 30 June 2018. The campaign aims to counter the softening stance and misperception toward drugs; garner mindshare and support for a drug-free Singapore; and to co-create preventive solutions and projects with community partners and stakeholders. Schools and youths join the campaign to initiate their own anti-drug projects.

CAUSES OF STREET CHILD

Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation (ASYARF), a non-governmental organization ( NGO), has said the imbalance in the distribution of national wealth was Largely responsible for the rising incidence of a street child.

The President /Founder Dr. Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua, stated this in Street Child Awareness Campaign.

She also said lack of empowerment of the majority in the society has culminated in poverty “making it imperative for the citizenry to attach little importance to the place of value and decency in a battle for survival in a rising competitive environment”

OUR VISION

Our vision is a world where NO ONE IS ALONE, a world where everyone has access to the support and care they need; an Africa where AIDS and opportunistic diseases are eradicated and where women and girls are empowered and educated.

OUR MISSION

We work to ensure that the youth we serve become agents of their own change and use their knowledge to change their communities.

We reach the youth of sub-Saharan Africa whose lives are affected by AIDS.

We help tomorrow's responsible parents by helping to prepare the youth of today.

We vest youth with the preventive knowledge needed to stay alive and teach them to share that knowledge with their peers.

We build extended family support networks in local villages and communities to deliver education and healthcare to children affected by AIDS.

We create healthcare awareness by building basic health plans with village women and their families. These plans help them to prevent HIV/AIDS, Malaria and water-borne diseases.

Massimo Barra, founder of Villa Maraini, partecipated online as representative of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies at the 3rd intersessional meeting of CND started in Wien on 19th october 2020.

Barra talked about challenges in access to treatment for PWUDs during the COVID-19 pandemic:

“COVID-19 risks to become a ‘perfect excuse’ to justify inaction against people with drug use disorders. Availability of opioid substitution therapy is the 1st step to alleviate human suffering, as we stated in the Rome Consensus 2.0 Declaration. Within this health public warning for Covid-19 governments should also test & treat population for hepatitis C and HIV.

Pandemic crisis should be an opportunity to integrate harm reduction in outreach strategies at all levels."
