It was gathered that ACSEC is a non-governmental, nonprofit and social organisation focused on children, youth and community development.
The initiative was founded by a young Nigerian, Mr Bonaventure Emenali, currently a serving State’s Commissioner for Lands, since in 2008 during his one-year National Youth Service on discovery of inefficiency among African Child and Youth to nurture and promote their skills and talents.
The organisation had grown beyond the initial idea through the formation of 12 core projects such as ACSEC Annual Convention/Talent Day and Competition; Campaign Against Rape Project (CARP); Moment with Children (MWC) and Strategic African Youth Empowerment Forum (SAYEF).
Othera are Strategic African Child Empowerment Forum (SACEF); Sensitisation programmes on HIV/AIDS; Self Development Self Awareness; value Oriented Leadership and SCSEC Club Projects.
The rest are African Child Sports Club, Modeling Club, Entrepreneurship Club, Music Club, Dancing, Technical, Family Counseling Projects, Good Education for African Projects (GEFAP), Adult Education Projects, (AEP), Out of School Education Projects (OSEP), In School Education Projects (ISEP) and the commemoration of International Day for the African Child and Advocacy.
The founder said he regretted the sexual and other abuses going on in the society, especially on the females.
Emenali called on the Judiciary to declare a State of Emergency on girl-child and women abuses.
He urged Ndi Anambra, particularly the women to attend the programme, to be in the forefront of a solution for any attempt to be abused. (MOI)
