Grassroots Initiative for Gender and Development (GRID), Nigeria
GRID worked with internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Patani community to raise awareness on existing Community-Based Complaints Mechanisms (CBCMs), whilst strengthening safe and confidential entry points to disclose SEA and request assistance, including through health and social welfare centres.
Over the course of four weeks, the organization developed and broadcast awareness-raising videos and songs, and held call-in radio programs on what constitutes SEA. GRID also produced and distributed 2,000 copies of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Act in pidgin and other local languages, as well as an audio version for the blind.
For the awareness raising GRID developed
- A booklet providing information in a simplified and inclusive way on the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Act, in Ijaw and Nigerian Pidgin
- An audio version of the booklet in Nigerian Pidgin
- A radio jingle in Nigerian Pidgin which provides information on what constitutes PSEA, targeting affected communities.
