In a move to address gender-based violence (GBV), Leadership Initiative for Youth Empowerment (LIFE) has embarked on a 32-month campaign in collaboration with African Women Development Fund (AWDF).

The campaign:  “Break the Silence, End the violence: Stand against Gender-Based Violence (GBV),” is aimed at amplifying voices of women  survivors, and making an impact in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Lagos State.

LIFE’s objective is to enhance protection against sexual and gender-based violence for young girls and women, leveraging provisions of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Law (VAPP) 2015 of Nigeria.

The initiative involves training community advocates from groups and local institutions to raise awareness about legal safeguards against rape, female genital mutilation, domestic violence, and female trafficking in grassroots communities in Oshodi-Isolo council.

The project will reshape dynamics between community members, law enforcement, and key government agencies involved in combating gender-based violence.
