Challenge

One in every three Nigerian women experienced sexual violence as a child. Yet conversations on sexuality remain taboo in Nigeria, especially among young people-ages10 and 21. Women are regarded as subordinate to men. This culture of sexual ignorance, coupled with enforced stereotypes, demeans women and contributes greatly to gender-based violence. to end this we seriously need to end child marriage. We also have to seriously address sexual harassment of girls and proper education on sexuality.

Solution

We will regularly convene a wide range of stakeholders to share knowledge and build evidence on what works to address violence against women and girls. We will select public schools and work with 20 communities to understand how they see sexual challenges. Our Trained facilitators will then implement a 4-week program to address some of the root causes of gender-based violence like poverty and illiteracy. We will target students, parents, and teachers so as to attack the problem from all angles.

Long-Term Impact

Early intervention is the best effective form of prevention since gender-based violence is likely to occur when adolescent reaches adulthood. There is need for significant learning and knowledge sharing through partnership. In addition, by increasing awareness and changing behaviour, our intervention will help to reduce the gender inequality that exists at all levels of society in Nigeria. We will use a baseline survey and a final questionnaire to evaluate the effectiveness of our intervention.
