#Bring Back Our Girls

#Bring Back Our Girls

#Bring Back Our Girls - The piece supports the Bring Back Our Girls campaign, which raised awareness of the kidnap of 276 Chibok girls in Nigeria on 14th April 2014. Many of these girls were sexual exploited and forced into marriage. This mural shows the Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai, who campaigns for girls to have access to education and supports the campaign and called for the Nigerian government to do more to save these girls.

As of 2018, of the kidnapped 57 girls managed to escape, 107 were released, and 112 are still missing. The campaign is demanding that the Nigerian government rescue the remaining girls and reunite them with their families.
