Child poverty reduction is one of the most important and urgent tasks that requires attention
in most regions of the world, nations and Anambra state specifically. The population of
impoverished children is progressively increasing in Nigeria because of economic recession
and poor security situations that lead to displacement and death of their parents. Although
children constitute half of the entire population, commensurate attention is not given to
them to match the dimensions of poverty they face. This study argued that child poverty
is multidimensional, evidenced in lack of safe drinking water, adequate nutrition, shelter,
decent sanitation, medical advice or health services (immunisations) and education, to mention
a few. The article highlighted the laudable efforts of the United Nations International
Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and Anambra government and maintained that
multiple strategies can help in solving this problem. To complement these efforts, the
enforcement of biblical policies or principles about children’s rights would in no small measure
reduce child poverty. It was concluded that a proper repositioning of children would be
matched with implementation of biblical strategies. Biblical intervention could help children
socially, mentally and psychologically and in their general well-being. Biblical principles
would erase wrong socio-cultural notions about children.
