Group Sensitizes Sokoto Community On Curtailing GBV

The Community Awareness Development Initiative (CADI) on Monday started a 16-day door-to-door campaign against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in rural communities of Sokoto State.

The Chairman of the group, who is also the District Head of Gagi noted that many women and girls in the community are not aware when they are abused.

He said the campaign gave CADI officials and community members the opportunity to share thoughts on measures to reduce violence against women and girls, drawing insights from their various communities.

According to him, the campaign also challenges discriminatory behaviours against the female gender in social norms and actions that were detrimental to women and girls especially in educational pursuits.

He explained that CADI officials shared thoughts on measures to reduce violence against women and girls, drawing insights from their various communities.

The chairman commended the UNFPA for its support and expressed commitment to continuous working partnership and advocacy for the reduction in gender-based violence.

As part of the activities in the community, Sani Umar-Jabbi, distributed books, handbags and scarves with anti-GBV campaign slogans in Gagi community in Sokoto South Local Government Area.

In her good will message, UNFPA Programme Officer in Sokoto State, Gloria Eneauze, read a statement by the Resident Representative of the UNFPA, Ulla Mueller where she called for collaborative efforts to tackle GBV.

“Putting an end to this violence starts with believing survivors, adopting comprehensive and inclusive approaches that tackle the root causes, transforming harmful social norms, and empowering women and girls,’’ she said.
