Over 200 schoolgirls aged 12-16 are still missing in Nigeria, THREE months after they were abducted from their school by armed militant group Boko Haram. The group, who protest the education of women and girls, have threatened mass rapes and enforced marriages, claiming they have a right to do as they wish with their ‘spoils of war’.
JULY 23rd 2014 WILL MARK 100 DAYS SINCE THEIR ABDUCTION.
THAT’S 100 DAYS TOO MANY!

To date, the Nigerian government has sent only minimum search parties, and whilst the world continues to condemn these kidnappings, little action has been taken on the ground, and news coverage remains minimal.

4. KEEP THIS STORY ALIVE! It is absolutely crucial that this ‘story’ doesn’t disappear into the abyss. Whilst Hollywood stars such as Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie and even Sylvester Stallone continue to highlight the issue, news coverage is still minimal. Share images, videos and news stories (see below) about our girls as wide as you can, so that BOTH editors and politicians can see this matter is not going to go away!
