School-related gender-based violence is a significant barrier to students’ educational opportunities. Last week we organized an informative and empowering training session in Nasarawa State, involving 15 teachers selected from various local government areas of the State.
This training was crucial because the issue of school-related gender-based violence in primary and secondary schools has been inadequately addressed, despite its profound impact on a child’s physical, mental, sexual, and emotional well-being during their crucial developmental years.
During the training, teachers gained valuable insights into identifying instances of Sexual Reproductive Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV) within school settings.
Equipped with this knowledge, the participants made a heartfelt commitment to actively contribute towards eradicating this form of violence from our educational institutions. Their dedication and determination in taking action against SRGBV signify an important step forward in creating safe and supportive learning environments for all students.
