By Abisola James | Communication Officer

Rofiat a mother of one (1) whose husband was financially irrresponsible, always maltreating  her,  neglects her and beats her right infront of the children. 

She was referred to Olive Community Development Initiative by one of the survivors who also have benefited positively from the organization. 

After having pschotheraphy session with the counselor, Olive Community Development Initiative referred the case to Ministry of Justice in Ilorin, Kwara State, where her husband  was called for mediation meeting where he was counselled by the senior counsellor and gender desk officer.

As a result of the mediation meeting, the husband committed to change and promised to take financial responsibility of the family, the wife was also counseled to go for family planning.

After a while, the wife came back to appreciate the organization for the intervention, as the husband now buys food stuff and takes responsibility.
