The book’s narrative revolves around the inspiring story of five resilient children who managed to escape the clutches of sex slavery. These young survivors were tragically ensnared by individuals they had trusted – a stark reminder of the vulnerability of children in the face of greed and exploitation.
In her own words, Juliana Francis highlights the book’s mission: “For too long, the innocence of our children has been sacrificed for the pursuit of wealth and power. ‘We Are Priceless’ serves as a clarion call to unite against human trafficking and its devastating consequences.”
Juliana’s illustrious career spans decades, during which she has displayed an unwavering commitment to exposing crimes against humanity, particularly those affecting young girls. With her extensive accolades and notable achievements, including being the first female overall winner of the esteemed Wole Soyinka Prize for Investigative Reporting in Nigeria, she has demonstrated her dedication to advocating for justice and change.Book
We Are Priceless” is more than just a book; it’s a catalyst for societal transformation. By engaging young minds and fostering awareness about the perils of human trafficking, Francis hopes to mobilize Nigerians across all sectors in the fight against this grave menace. As she passionately asserts, the fight begins with education and understanding.
As the countdown to the book launch continues, anticipation is mounting for the pivotal role that “We Are Priceless” will play in driving conversation, promoting action, and ultimately safeguarding the future of Nigeria’s children.
