Nollywood actress and talkshow host,  Tricia Esiegbe-Kerry has stepped up  with her latest initiative as she is  set to combat child sex abuse.  Her foundation Bold Faces International is ready to educate the public about pedophiles.

To achieve this, her foundation has launched a public awareness programme on child abuse called  -The Psychologist.

According to her, the programme aims at ‘’preventing the sexual abuse of children and to encourage victims of child sexual abuse to come out and tell their stories via our television talk-show programme.

Tricia said:  “ we intend to use the platform of ‘The Psychologist” to address child sexual molestation in our society, to expose sexual predators and create a support platform for victims of child molestation, and to get the authorities to do more to support our children”.

Scheduled to go on air soon ‘The Psychologist’ is designed as a 30minutes television talk show programme and it will feature a special segment called Brave Seat of Change which will week in, week out feature real life stories of people that have experienced child molestation whilst growing up.
According to Tricia, Boldfaces International Foundation would not be doing this all alone. She disclosed that she’s partnering  with several institutions including the Nigerian Police to drive the project. Boldfaces International Foundation was established a few years back to advocate for the sexually abused children and  to provide evidence-based information to policy makers, media and advocacy groups.
