Chibok Girls: 731 days on

Published on April 5, 2016

731 days on and 219 young women remain missing and separated from their families in Nigeria.

On 14/15 April 2016, it will be the two year anniversary of the abduction of the Chibok Girls in Nigeria. GB International is asking all its members and friends to join together in praying for these young women and the many others affected by Boko Haram’s violence.

You can download this short adaptable GB prayer here and use it in GB, in church or in many other ways. The prayer can be linked with practical action through GB International’s Cards of Hope initiative or through the Hope for Girls resource. And remember, it can be used any time.

The resource also provides an update on the difficult situation in Nigeria and urges us to pray for these young women, the many other people who have been affected by violence as well as their families. Since 2009, 15,000 people have been killed and over 2 million have been forced to leave their homes

As a movement, Girls’ Brigade cares about how girls around the world are treated. We aim to bring hope into girls’ lives, and freedom brings hope! That’s why Girls’ Brigade members from around the world are joining together to pray for the Chibok school girls in Nigeria (six of whom are members of The Girls’ Brigade).

Please join us as we continue to raise hope for girls.
