Improving Gender Equalities and Strengthening the Legal Rights of Women and Young People

 

WRAHP implemented a project on Improving Gender Equalities and Strengthening the Legal Rights of Women and Young People with the support of OSIWA. The project addressed the gender disparity in access to legal protection by women and young people and improved the support provided to women and young people to access protection from gender-based violence under the Lagos state Domestic Violence (DV) law 2009.

The project specifically increased reporting and documentation of gender-based violence among 5,000 community beneficiaries in Lagos State, increased community leaders’ awareness of gender inequalities and provided linkages to the legal protection options for women/young people and their prioritization of actions against gender-based violence.
