Challenges of Gender Based Violence in Nigeria
Mar 30, 2022
I serve as a Gender Protection Officer with the Association Against Child Sexual and Gender Based Violence in an on going project with a member organization.
Everyday, I listen to reports on domestic Violence from either partners. But mostly the females and I try to resolve these issues to the best of my ability or I make referrals to healthcare providers etc.
Some cases, especially where physical violence occured, I try to counsel on temporary separation which could lead to permanent separation.
As time go on, I will be sharing some of my Counseling sessions here.
I also vulunteer at a Gender Based Violence Response Referral Network where I work with other advocates to provide counseling, psychosocial support and care services to survivors of Rape, and other forms of Sexual and Gender Based Violence Survivors here in Delta State, Nigeria.
I will try to share some of my encounter and stories here from time to time.
