About

The vision for Saffron Safeguarding African Children and Adults Partnership was birthed at the ‘Safeguarding Children and Families within the Nigerian Community Conference’ facilitated by a couple of our directors, other members of the Nigerian community and myself, which took place at the Nigerian High Commission in the UK in August 2017.  Part of the outcomes from the conference was the formation of the British Nigeria Safeguarding Consortium (now a registered UK organisation) effectively working within Nigerian Communities and now our safeguarding service. 

LATEST CAMPAIGNS

We organize a variety of events to help people learn about and get involved with Safeguarding African Children and Parents.

  • Ngozi Ojiako

    My name is Ngozi Ojiako, I am known by all as Giz. I have three teenage children.

    My background is a mix of Childcare and Health and Social Care. I am passionate about both.

    Having set up and run my own Childcare business from 2009 until 2017, I discovered that the youth lacked a voice within society. Their needs were not being completely met.

    As Healthcare advocate. I have worked within this sector since 1998 alongside my childcare business.

    Having gained a wealth of experience and worked up to management level. I recently embarked on a Bsc(Hons) in Health and Social Care Management at Anglia Ruskin University.

    Child and Adult Care are my niche the desire to improve the lives of children within our society and empower them is my main goal.

    I have also been instrumental in forming two associations within the UK, which help to fund youth back home in Nigeria and support their educational needs. I am the Secretary and Trustee of one association and the founding President of the other.

    I am very pleased to be a part of this group. My involvement with Saffron Nigeria was the catalyst, and being part of this extension was a no brainer.

    I hope to be able to engage and make positive changes in the lives of the youth, and finding ways of supporting and mentoring them towards a brighter future.

    My hobbies are traveling, dancing, football, and meeting people.
