Did you know that nearly 3 in 10 Nigerian women have experienced physical violence by age 15? Or 1 in every 3 persons has been beaten, forced to have sex or abused in some way or the other, most often by someone he/she is familiar with.
It is also no news that genderbased violence undermines the health,dignity, security and freedom of its victims, yet they remain in silence because of fear. The victims of these actions are usually left with lots of challenges and consequences that linger. As a result of these issues, we will be starting our first project on Gender Based Violence, using various tools, ranging from stories, educative information and advocacy to the best practices on how to prevent it before it happens. We would also share various ways we can help prevent the same violence from repeating itself in the younger generation.
We however, cannot do this alone and your inputs will be greatly appreciated.
