MOBILIZING COMMUNITIES TO END SBV AGAINST GIRLS IN DUTSE & WUMBA COMMUNITY
The UNTF funded project aims to mobilise 2 communities in the Abuja Municipal Area Council of the FCT to develop local mechanisms and action plans to address SBVAG in these communities. In doing this local community peer representatives will be organised into Community based Child protect on watch groups and empowered to develop action plans to protect and respond to sexual based violence against girls (SBVAG). They will also be supported in developing referral mechanisms that will link survivors in their communities to the required SBVAG state and non-state actors in and around their locality who can provide; shelter and protection, medical, legal and psychosocial support services. Female mentors and Girls in the community would also be empowered as part of the solution to address sexual violence in both communities.
