Combat Sexual Exploitation of Women

Our findings show that poverty and hunger pose the biggest threats to young children in Nigeria making them more vulnerable to sexual exploitation. Help us combat this societal ill by donating to our Adopt-a-Girl for the holidays fundraiser. ANWEP is adopting 1000 girls in 5 rural and impoverished local government areas in Nigeria for the holiday season. Help us provide food, sanitary towels, underwears, toiletries, clothing and books to these girls. ANWEP is a 501c3 tax exempt organization. All donations are tax deductible.
