IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO PROTECT A CHILD

This message is brought to you by SOAR Initiative with the support of the European Union, Rule of Law and Anti Corruption Program (RoLAC).

MEN SPEAK UP

Children have continued to remain vulnerable to sexual violence with incidents occurring where they should be safest including in, to and from school and by those who should care for them. Statistics remain alarmingly high, with over 9 million children in Nigeria under the age of 18 years being exposed to sexual violence every year. This project seeks to “catch them young” by mobilizing and training adolescent school boys as Advocates to break the silence of sexual violence against boys and advocate against sexual violence of children generally.

Physical Safe Spaces Implemented Under The Spotlight Initiative

Implemented by SOAR Initiative, Contracted by UNESCO under the Spotlight Initiative. Physical safe spaces for Women and Girls have been opened in Kurudu (AMAC) and Ushafa (Bwari) communities.
