Brown, in his story, ‘Update from Nigeria: Launching the Safe Schools Initiative’ on his Huffington Post page, welcomed the Nigerian military statement that it had located the girls. Calling on the international community to play a  vital role in making education a reality for all Nigerian children, Brown said this week, his outfit, along with the Nigerian government, will flag off what he called Safe Schools Initiative aimed at making schools more secure for Nigerian children and to help end a situation where 10.5 million Nigerian girls and boys do not go to school.

The aim of the initiative, Brown said, is to ensure that young people are not only safe in going to school, but that we also provide an environment ripe for learning, growth and development free of fear.
