WRAPA’s Haki Mkononi project holds training for parliamentarians in Plateau State.
WRAPA conducted a Knowledge Update for Parliamentarians with a focus to Scale up Male Involvement in Advocacy to Champion the Passage of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Bill and Implementation of the Gender and Equal Opportunities (GEO) Law in Plateau State
The workshop met its set objectives as the Parliamentarians, Legislative clerks and Administrative staff of the Plateau State House of Assembly had improved knowledge on provisions of the VAPP Bill and the need to give their support towards the smooth passage of the Bill. The selected Parliamentarians pledged their full support to the passage of the Bill while the Administrative staff who the Deputy Speaker referred to as the engine room of the House promised to advocate for the smooth passage of the VAPP and consequently, its implementation.
This is an OXFAM GB funded project on Regional Legal Empowerment Programme for Women’s Rights in Kaduna and Plateau States
