CaptiV Dream

CaptiV Dream is a heartfelt tribute to the Chibok girls, kidnapped while preparing for their exams in April 2014.

With a future brutally paused by the Boko Haram group, the girls as well as the family, friends, and community they were taken from, are victims of terrorism.

CaptiV Dream is a heartfelt tribute to the Chibok girls,that were kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists while preparing for their exams in April 2014.

With a future brutally paused by the Boko Haram group, the girls as well as the family, friends, and community they were taken from, are victims of terrorism.

As the years go by, the conversation about the girls has slowed down. However, records as of April 2021 show that over 100 girls are still missing. CaptiV Dream advocates for the return of the girls, as much as it explores the dangers of excluding or tampering with the education of the girl-child in Northern Nigeria.
