By December 12, 2023No Comments


Engaging in a transformative journey, our recent community outreach spanned across Boki, Becheve, and Obudu LGAs in Cross River State. We dedicated our efforts to amplify awareness on the far-reaching impact of Child, Early, and Forced Marriage (CEFM) while sensitizing community members to the diverse forms of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV).

Key Initiatives:

  1. CEFM Awareness:
    • Unveiling the repercussions of CEFM.
    • Empowering individuals with knowledge to combat this societal challenge.
  2. SGBV Sensitization:
    • Addressing various forms of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence.
    • Fostering a culture of understanding and empathy within communities.
  3. Action Groups Formation:
    • Establishing dedicated action groups.
    • These groups stand united to support victims of CEFM and spearhead advocacy efforts for the prevention of both CEFM and SGBV in our target communities.

Impact and Results:

  • Community Empowerment:
    • Witnessing a surge in community members actively engaging in discussions.
    • Fostering an environment where everyone plays a pivotal role in eradicating CEFM and SGBV.
  • Support for Victims:
    • Action groups providing a robust support system for victims of CEFM.
    • Creating a safe space for survivors of SGBV to seek assistance.
  • Advocacy Momentum:
    1. Advocacy initiatives gaining momentum within the target communities.
    2. Encouraging proactive measures for the prevention of CEFM and SGBV.

In our commitment to building resilient and empowered communities, this outreach marked a significant step forward. Together, we strive to eradicate CEFM and create a future where Women and girls can live free from the shadows of SGBV. Join us in this transformative journey towards a safer, more compassionate society.
