As part of our activities for the 16 Days of Activism, the WARIF Outreach Services team recently completed a successful round of sessions of the Boys Conversation Cafe for 100 boys in Kebbi State.
Training of the teachers on Gender based Violence was also a key element and was an integral part of the sessions.
In partnership with the Kebbi State Government, adolescent school boys between the ages of 12 and 16, were educated on the prevailing issues surrounding gender based violence (GBV)- changing their existing negative mindsets towards GBV is critical in changing their narrative towards becoming protectors of women and not perpetrators. .
His Excellency, Governor Atiku Bagudu led by example and participated in a mentoring session, offering valuable life lessons on the importance of having these conversations.
