Caritas Nigeria, Campaign Against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV)

The goal of a campaign against sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is to confront, prevent, and raise awareness of the problem of violence against people because of their gender, sexual orientation, or sex. Many types of abuse, including sexual harassment, assault, domestic abuse, human trafficking, and discrimination, are included in SGBV. These campaigns are vital because they aim to establish a society in which everyone can live without fear or violence.

The campaign against sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) was brought to Ogbor Community Primary School 1 in the Aba North Local Government Area of the state by the Caritas Nigeria team in collaboration with the Presbyterian Church and Service Development. During the school’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meeting, instructors from the “No Means No” program conducted a thorough sensitization of SGBV prevention.

The team educated the participants on Caritas Nigeria’s ACCESS Project and one of its intervention areas, the Orphans and Vulnerable Children’s (OVC) program, which is where the “No Means No” project is implemented, in addition to bringing attention to sexual and gender-based violence. The “No Means No” program’s Good Boys group also provided insightful information regarding SGBV prevention.

Our team provided HIV testing services, dewormed school-age children (ages 0–14), and distributed vital nutrition supplies like powdered micronutrients and vitamin A supplements as part of the Accelerated Control of HIV Epidemic and Sustainability Solutions (ACCESS) Project goal, all of which improved community health and wellbeing.
