Monitoring and Evaluation Consultancy Recruitment
EU/UN WOMEN SPOTLIGHT INITIATIVE PROJECT
Negotiating & Strengthening SGBV Protection for Women’s Rights Advocates /Marginalized Groups in FCT, Adamawa and Sokoto States
The issue of gender based violence affects hundreds of millions of people around the world. This has peculiar
implications for people with marginalized racial, ethnic, class, indigenous, or disabled status. “Violence against
women and girls is among the most widespread and a devastating human rights violation in the world, but much
of it is often unreported due to norms and practices that further entrench gender inequality through the culture
of impunity, public shaming, and forced silence. Global statistics show that one in four women will experience a
form of violence in her lifetime; yet women’s rights issues remain hugely underfunded” (UN Women, 2019).
The Nigerian Government’s response has included efforts to improve its institutional and policy framework,
which include the Violence against Person Prohibition (VAPP) Act, enacted at the national level in 2015 passed
in 32 States, the National Policy on the Elimination of FGM/C, the National Strategy to End Child Marriage, a
Road Map and National Priority Actions to End Violence Against Children (VAC) which have been adopted and
are being supported for implementation as well as several policies and frameworks for a conducive environment
for women and girls’ access to quality sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) information and
services. Civil society remains a key important constituency, working to hold the government accountable to
deliver on rights protection. However, despite the existence of a strong feminist movement, the potential of civil
society and women groups to advance women’s rights, including SRHR, has been insufficiently tapped to date
due to limited coordination and capacity gaps.
Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA) is rights based non-profit charitable
organization promoting and influencing the enforcement of women’s human rights, the elimination of repugnant
practices, violence against women, and enhancement of their living standards. WRAPA as a Spotlight
implementing partner (IP) contributes to the delivery of SI ultimate goal under pillar 6.(Women’s movement)
– “Negotiating & Strengthening SGBV Protection For Women’s Rights Advocates /Marginalized Groups In Adamawa, Sokoto
States and FCT”.
