The Strengthening Community Response to Violence against Women and Girls was a pivotal moment and a chance to change the status quo in Nasarawa and Toto Local government areas of Nasarawa states.

We are already working hard to prevent harmful practices. We have built a strong response system in six communities in the two local government areas in Nasarawa state, bringing all stakeholders on board. What we need now is the political will and commitment to sustain the gender-based violence structure established.

We created short messages in the local language. These short messages show some inspiring examples of the actions we are taking at the grassroots to end all forms of violence – Sensitisation and community awareness for the community to be aware of FGM, early marriage and abuse; with contact details of  Community Peace Committee members to call should in case of violence occur. Download
