Rating: 2.6/5 (9 votes cast)

A history of an estimated 15,000 children in Niger Delta Africa being denounced by Christian pastors, like witches and wizards and killed, tortured or abandoned by their families.

Two and a half years, Ellin is a child like this. It is located on the side of the road, his body having been severely burned by boiling water. Nwanakwo, eight years old, had poured acid on him after being labeled as an assistant, and died shortly after.

Back to Africa’s child witches is a documentary that follows the work of Gary Foxcroft, an Englishman whose charity, Stepping Stones, raises funds to help care for more than 150 children accused of witchcraft, and blamed the disaster, death and hunger. Narrated by Sophie Okonedo.

    Stepping Stones Nigeria who are featured in the documentary have launched a global campaign with their Nigerian partners to Prevent Abuse of Children Today (PACT). The aim of PACT is to bring long-term positive social change to vulnerable children in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, particularly those at risk of witchcraft accusations, abuse and trafficking.

    To help end this terrible abuse we urge you to stand with us to Prevent Abuse of Children Today. There are lots of ways for you to get involved with the campaign, in particular signing our PACT, holding events and writing letters. Visit our website http://www.makeapact.org to sign the PACT and help us spread the word.

    Together, we are fighting for a time when all children in the Niger Delta are free from physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse and their rights are fully upheld. With your help, we can make this vision a reality.
