CRH Officially unveils her GBV Project for Women and Girls with Disabilities to Stakeholders in Imo State

Persons with disabilities of both genders are predominantly exposed to abuse but women and girls with disabilities have a high risk of experiencing violence due to double discrimination as both female gender and disability are viewed as notions of vulnerability and lack of power. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognizes that women and girls with disabilities are often at greater risk of violence, injury, abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation both within and outside the homes.

With Support from the Ford Foundation CRH recieved a grant to: Build the Capacities of Disability and Women’s Rights Organizations and Engaging Cultural and Religious Gatekeepers to Prevent Gender based Violence (GBV) Against Women with Disabilities (WWD).

On Friday, October 20, 2023,  participants  drawn from State Ministry of Women Affairs, National Human Rights Commission, Nigerian Bar Association, Religious leaders, Persons with Disabilities, Women led Civil Society Organizations, traditional and religious institutions and the Media converged at the Rockview Hotels Owerri for an official project inception meeting where the project goals and objectives were explained to Stakeholders and the active collaboration and participation sort.
