The Operational Plans serves as an evidence-based advocacy tool and provides the necessary framework to budget for OVC program across the LGAs while also ensuring transparency and accountability.

The Service Providers Referral Directory provides a gamut of comprehensive service centres where users can access confidential, safe, and non-judgmental services in the areas of health, education, psychosocial support, shelter, legal protection, economic strengthening among others.

Many thanks to United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for the immense support and technical assistance.
