For the past fourteen days, one of our central messages has been the need for for collaborations in order to end the scourge of Gender Based Violence (GBV). We believe in the power of working together to drive sustainable change in our communities.
The partnership between Mediators & Advocates of Peace (Lampaix) and The Metro Lawyer (TML) is a perfect example. Working together this year on the 16 days of activism campaign has ensured that more than before, a wider group of people are better informed of the campaign and what it stands for.
Other partnerships include those with Konrad Adenaur Stiftung (KAS), sponsor of the Vision Nigeria program on RayPower FM, Wazobia FM (Lady G and her audience) and Nigeria Info FM (Ben and Inya and their audience). Working with these Radio stations has been fun and highly productive.
Our message here is you do not have to walk this road alone. An African proverb says “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together”. We believe that collaborations make the job easier, especially if you want to go far.
All hands must be on deck to put an end to Gender Based Violence (GBV). The government, non governmental organizations, the media, entertainment and religious communities etc, play key roles in helping to end this inhumane acts and therefore must learn to work together.
We look forward to the future where more people will understand that Gender Based Violence has no place in decent society and must be jointly condemned.
Together we will achieve a peaceful society based on the rule of law and respect for human rights.
Join the fight to end GBV in Education.
