The Founder of the Nigeria-based NGO Land of Hope, Anja Ringgren Loven has taken to her social media account to share her pride on the accomplishments that one of the children under the care of her NGO have recorded. The NGO is working to rescue children from across the country if they are struggling to live.

By this, any ie, facing abuse, discrimination and neglect from their families and community due to superstition. The founders of Land of Hope, Anja and David, assisted by their team, are committed to removing superstition from the country’s various communities.


In celebration of one of the rescued children, Anja Ringgren Loven shared a sucess story. 6 months ago, one of the rescued children, Ernest left Land of Hope to study at Maritime Academy of Nigeria. I was so proud then and now I’m speechless because Ernest’s first semester results are here

He’s just 0.2 points away from achieving a First-class distinction !!
I’m proud beyond words but also not so surprised because since David and I rescued Ernest 10 years ago he has progressed to an unthinkable level!

Ernest was the best student in his entire Secondary School and even held the prestigious role of Senior Prefect. With this, 10 years ago David and I went to a local village with a Danish documentary photographer to film our work.

We had planned to do an advocacy program but we ended up in a dangerous rescue mission. The local villagers came out with a little boy living in the bushes for two years. It was Ernest. Some of the local villagers wanted to kill him. This was because they said he was a witch!

They had already killed his friend. They caught Ernest and his friend one night while sleeping inside the bushes. Ernest escaped and saw from a distance how his friend was tied with a robe around his neck and tied to a car. The car started driving and did not stop before his friend died.

Look at Ernest today! Not only is he a survivor. Not only is he excelling academically and leading his peers. Ernest is the most gentle, kind and helpful young man ever met. Congratulations Ernest. Keep rising against all odds. You are my star
