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

The project will teach students about gender-based violence in the context of national laws and policies, as well as school policies. This will enable the recipients to continue to support the Nigerian government and people in their efforts to eliminate sexual harassment in tertiary education institutions across the country.
