Galvanising Mass Action Against Gender-based Violence in Kano State- Phase II

Accelerating our Impact

In 2021, Bridge Connect Africa Initiative partnered with Connected Development (CODE) and the Canadian High Commission to Nigeria (CHCN) for the Galvanizing Mass Action Against Gender-based Violence in Kano (GMAAK) project. The project trained 30 gender advocates on using social and traditional media to demand the passage of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act and included advocacy visits to key government agencies, ministries, and traditional rulers.

In 2022, under BCAI's supervision, further activities were implemented, including step-down training in three communities, a video documentary, capacity strengthening of 30 gender advocates to develop the Kano State Action Plan for ending GBV, leveraging 20 members of the Community Monitoring Team, and holding Joint Advocacy and Review Meetings with four key stakeholders to collate feedback on the draft State Action Plan.
