The Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA) was supported by TrustAfrica to conduct a mapping research aimed at data and documentation to provide a more comprehensive review of the nature and prevalence of SGBV incidents within the context insurgency in Borno State. Aimed at providing documented evidence derived directly from engagements with key stakeholders and survivors in camps and host communities, the mapping research has two primary objectives:
- Conduct a mapping of voluntarily declared survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence in the IDP camps and affected (selected) communities in Borno State for the purposes of appropriate documentation to support the advocacy for accountability of actors in conflict.
- Provide programming content towards psychosocial and other relevant supports for Sexual and Gender Based Violence survivors.
The research study has now been completed and a report has been put together, thus a need for its presentation. The presentation of this report was done over a meeting with all project members on the 20th July, 2018 in Abuja, Nigeria.
The project team led by the Project Director and Secretary General of WRAPA, Hajiya Saudatu Mahdi (MFR) deliberated on all sections of the report and provided necessary inputs to the report which would now be worked on ahead of a validation process.
