What Thinks IEVAWC

My seven years old niece have started getting sensitive with her body part to the extent of not even fancying her mum talk more of uncles see her nakedness………. Well, neighbors and other people close to the family seems to be having problem with that, claiming that how can a small girl like her behaves like that on account that she has nothing to hide!…… I happens to be the only one in support of what the little girl is doing. My argument revolves around the drastic change in our wicked society where children are being abused and molested every day by the least expected culprits like a game. So I feel it’s even a good thing when a girl doesn’t feel free with adult about her nakedness because that may go a long way in to curbing some sick minds from attempting something fishy…..but what thinks IEVAWC?

IEVAWC: A digital hub for eliminating gender violence in Nigeria

It may not be an overstatement to state that in Nigeria, almost every family had suffered or had witnessed gender violence! “In Nigeria, a survey was conducted by Project Alert on Violence Against Women in 2001. Interviews were conducted with women working in markets, women working in other work places, and with girls and young women in secondary schools and in a university in Lagos state. They were asked about physical abuse in the family and in relationships and about rape and reporting incidents of violence. The answers women gave were alarming. 64.4 percent of 45 women interviewed in the work place said that they had been beaten by a partner, boyfriend or husband. 56.2 percent of 48 market women had experienced the same kind of violence. According to Amnesty International, the federal and state governments were partly responsible for these alarming figures. Neither the federal or state governments were doing anything to stem this violence and in some cases were even condoning it thus putting at risk millions of women nationwide.” This menace is on the increase and calls for private and non-governmental organization participation. This is why the Initiative for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Children (IEVAWC) in Nigeria was founded as a non-profit and non-governmental organization that is committed to preventing, eliminating, and providing lasting solutions to gender violence such as wife-battering, rape and child sexual abuse in the Nigerian society. IEVAWC was founded in June 14, 2006 by Miss Nabiye Blessing John Tal and was officially registered with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission in July 18, 2008. Membership categories include executive, registered, affiliates honorary and volunteers all dedicated to giving adequate advice and confidential counseling services to victims of gender violence through sensitive education and enlightenment campaigns such as seminars, talk shows, interactive forums, concerts, etc. (more…)
