About the programme:

The EU-UN Spotlight Initiative: initiated by the European Union and the United Nations is a programme focused on eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls in Nigeria.  The Prevention of Campus Sexual Violence is a project implemented by the Women at Risk International Foundation (WARIF) sponsored by the Spotlight Initiative. The project will be based in tertiary institutions within Lagos state and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to address and tackle student-related concerns with sexual and gender-based violence on their respective campuses.

This project is aimed at increasing the awareness of sexual and gender-based violence in tertiary institutions and reduce its prevalence by promoting the adoption of policies and strategies or assisting in the strengthening of these policies where they already exist to prevent these acts of violence on campuses in select tertiary institutions in Lagos. Digital and physically safe spaces will also be advocated for and implemented in institutions where possible.

The project will educate students on national laws and policies, and school policies related to gender-based violence. This will enable the beneficiaries to remain committed to supporting the government and people of Nigeria to end sexual harassment in tertiary education institutions across the country.

Applicants who complete the virtual education classroom program would receive a certificate of completion, and stand the chance to be invited for the Lagos regional symposium on ending gender violence-related issues.
