The WARIF prevention of sexual violence initiative in partnership with the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative was a hybrid program with combined online classroom participation by students across institutions in Nigeria and in-person classroom sessions with students from tertiary institutions in Lagos and Abuja.
Over 3000 students were reached in Cycle 1 in 2020 with the first ever online classroom on the Prevention of School Related GBV in Nigeria. An additional 3000 more participated in the recently concluded Cycle 2 hybrid program.
Implementing in-person schools were; Lagos State University, (LASU; Ojo, Epe and Ikeja campus), Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) and Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (ACOED), VERITAS University, University of Abuja and Nile University.
Are you a student of a tertiary institution in Nigeria who wants to bring an end to school related gender based violence on your campus.
Watch out for Cycle 3 starting soon!
