CEAF seeks to break the social barriers and stigma around domestic violence and sexual assault in Nigeria. We want to normalize the conversation around these issues, and increase resources available to attend to these matters.
CEAF will be working with other organizations around the country to get everyone involved from a state level to a national level on the prevention, advocacy, and survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The numbers of women that are victims of GENDER base violence are appalling and that calls for public engagement and making sure our government gets involved.
