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 has successfully completed its Data Collection stage, whereby Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Survivors were being interviewed. Data Collectors who were engaged by WRAPA were on the field in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camps and host communities in Borno State, North-East Nigeria to carry out this process. The project is now in its Data Analysis Stage.
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.
