The WVL-Nig. Project is a five-year project supported by Action Aid Nigeria with funding from Global Affairs Canada. The project aims at tackling the barriers to gender equality and supporting the empowerment of women and girls through provision of financial and technical resources to local feminist/women’s rights organizations in Nigeria.

Working with Parent-Child Intervention Center (PCIC) under this intervention efforts to eliminate discrimination and rights violations in policy and legislation and the provision of services, as well as harmful social beliefs and practices was a brilliant opportunity for me to make contributions that promote access to education as an important process in mitigating gender-based violence.
