Ms Oluwayemisi Nathaniel, the Project Coordinator for the Promotion of Women’s Rights and Alternative Protection (WRAPA), revealed this to the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) at the end of the training in Yola on Saturday.
She said the Spotlight Initiative responds to all forms of violence against women, with a particular focus on sexual and gender-based violence (SBBV) and harmful practices.
According to her, WRAPA focuses its attention on the states of Abuja, Adamawa and Sokoto.
“The main focus of the Spotlight Initiative is to support transformative change on the ground aimed at ending violence against women and girls as well as ending harmful traditional practices in many countries around the world.
“The intervention focused on building the capacity of individuals and institutions to influence and act through state and non-state actors,” she said.
Nathaniel then urged participants to carry out the advocacy at various locations as planned.
She assured them of the group’s support to enable them to succeed in achieving the training objective.
She also urged stakeholders to contribute to the eradication of gender-based violence and other harmful practices in their respective communities.
Asabe Umar, a participant, congratulated the resource persons for their presentation and assured them that they would do everything possible to reduce violence against women.
Another participant, Ismail Mohammed, described the training as effective and pledged to educate others about sexual and gender-based violence, violence against women and other harmful practices (NAN)
