MAPPING OF SEXUAL AND GENDER BASED VIOLENCE IN IDP CAMPS AND SELECTED COMMUNITIES IN BORNO STATE NORTH EAST, NIGERIA – WRAPA INTERVIEWS SGBV SURVIVORS
The Women’s Rights Advancements and Protection Alternative (WRAPA) Nigeria, With support from TrustAfrica, is conducting a one year (September 2017 – August 2018) scoping project aimed at data and documentation to provide a more comprehensive review of the nature and prevalence of SGBV incidents within the context of the insurgency. The project is mapping existing interventions and their effectiveness in providing documented evidence derived directly from engagements with survivors in camps and host communities.
The project is currently at its Data Collection stage, whereby Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Survivors are being interviewed. Data Collectors who have been engaged by WRAPA are on the field in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camps and host communities in Borno State, North-East Nigeria carrying out this process. The Data Collection Stage would be completed by March 31st 2018 and then the project would proceed to its Data Analysis Stage by April 2018.
This project is being done with the objective of achieving appropriate documentation to support the advocacy for accountability of actors in the conflict and to provide programming content towards psychosocial support for Sexual and Gender Based Violence survivors.
