CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION: DSVA LAUNCHES CHILD-FRIENDLY BOOKLET
The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) on Wednesday launched a child-friendly booklet, titled: “My Passport of Rights” as part of activities commemorating the 2023 Children’s Day.
Executive Secretary of DSVA, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, who launched the booklet at the Lagos City Model College, Sabo, Yaba, said the booklet aims to bring awareness to the prevalence of child abuse, as well as provide useful information and resources for survivors.
She explained that the innovative booklet was designed to infuse knowledge into children on their rights in the State, saying “It is a must-read for anyone who cares about the welfare of children and wants to make a difference in their lives as it is expected to inspire actions”.
Vivour-Adeniyi encouraged the over 300 students who attended the launch from various schools across the State to get copies and acquaint themselves with all the details pertaining to children’s rights in the booklet.
While emphasising that the “My Passport of Rights” booklet is available at the Agency free of charge for interested persons, especially students, she wished them a Happy Children’s Day celebration in advance.
Hassan Abiodun, Principal of Lagos City College and Taiwo Salako, District Counsellor for Education District IV, commended the State Government for the initiative, saying the booklet is an ideal resource tool to educate children on their rights.
