Our Girls Need You - The Boko Haram Kidnappings Did Not End

Five years ago #BringBackOurGirls captivated people around the world after 276 Nigerian schoolgirls from Chibok were kidnapped by terrorist group Boko Haram. But while the international headlines and social media campaigns have since stopped, the kidnappings continue. More than a hundred girls were kidnapped from their school dormitory in Dapchi in February 2018, and dozens of women and children were kidnapped in March 2019. Without effective interventions and financial resources, how will Nigeria win the war against Boko Haram?
