SLOC Project

Strengthening the Capacities of Local Women’s Rights Organisations to Combat Violence against Women and Girls (SLOC VAWG) Project


This is a 3-year project funded by Ford Foundation. It seeks to support Women’s Rights Organisations (WROs) in their work of advancing gender equality in Nigeria. Specifically, the project seeks to provide technical and financial supports to WROs as they seek to challenge oppressive socio-cultural norms and practices that exacerbate gender-based violence (GBV) and the fear of it across 3 states -Gombe, Imo states and the FCT. Through capacity building and sub-granting, the project will work towards improving organizational and institutional capabilities of WROs to strategically design, implement and manage actions on GBV for vulnerable women and girls thus contributing to women and girls living with reduced violence and fear of it in project states.
