    #BringBackOurGirls

    Make Our Children YOUR PRIORITY!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Uchenna99 says when she first heard about the abducted schoolgirls in Nigeria her heart dropped. 'Nigeria is home for me,' she said, she's currently living in Canada because of schooling. 'I initially tried to imagine how a thing [like this] would occur and why. Then I thought the government is not doing enough. Our children need to be protected. They are the future of tomorrow,' she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
