Laws UNICEF Helped Pass or Passed:

Child Rights Act

"There are various laws created to guide everyone for instance the constitution. 

There are also human rights laws as well as laws created for both women and 

children in Nigeria but these laws are not specifically created for just children 

and it does not address the needs of children”, 

Thus, the creation of the Child Rights Act (2003)."
