“In Nigeria, over 200 girls were recently abducted from their boarding school and are reported to be eventually sold as brides for $ 12 each. This petition calls on all World Leaders and enabled parties to rescue them.
The abducted 200+ girls are victims of an ongoing conflict within Nigeria that they did not create, and their voices need to be heard.
We can only imagine what these 200+ girls have been through, and solicit that more effort be put to save them.
I am a young person who believes every child regardless of their sex, should not be denied access to education. We believe that more can be contributed to the efforts of the Nigerian government to ensure the safe return of these girls.
By signing this petition we express our solidarity with the kidnapped girls and implore the world not to forget them, support all efforts to ensure their safe return, and that efforts are made to ensure all schools are safe places to learn, protected from attack.”
After this event took place, little was reported in the mainstream media. It’s been the social media: Facebook, Twitter, the Blogosphere, etc, which has taken over to spread this information and report on updates. These girls have no voice now. It’s up to all of us to speak for them.
Please, keep this going.
The more, the “merrier” … for lack of a better phrase. Keep the pressure on. This is now in the eyes of the world!!
We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!!
We ALL are ONE!!

On April 16, over 230 school girls were kidnapped from their dorm rooms by terrorists in Nigeria. The world has done nothing to rescue them.
This video was made by Louis Adeyemi, a young Nigerian Director (@thelouisking). The voice you hear is of a father of one of our kidnapped girl’s.
