The Centre for Women Studies and Intervention, a grantee of the United Nations Trust Fund and Spotlight Initiative, implemented the Action to Eliminate Violence against Women (ATEVAW) project from 2020 to 2023 in four LGAs of Cross Rivers State. The project aimed to dismantle gender-based inequalities, empowering women to be agents of change against Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG). Engaging men and empowering women aligned with UN principles, SDGs, and the Maputo Protocol. A key project component was a Media campaign through CRBC, leading to positive changes in customary laws. CRBC in recognition of CWSI’s colossal Contribution to ending VAW/G in Cross River state, gave CWSI an outstanding Award.
