LASU, UNFPA holds training for staff on Gender-Based Violence in emergencies

Sexual and Gender-Based Violence is a topical issue and a violation of human rights. It is rooted in gender inequity and further promotes them.

LAGOS State University (LASU), in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Centre for Response and Prevention of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (CRPSGBV), has held a two-week training programme for selected staff members across its three campuses, Ojo, Ikeja, Epe, on effective service delivery for survivors of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV).

The training, titled "Training of Trainers on Gender Based Violence in Emergencies (GBVIE)," commenced today, Monday, April 15, 2024, at the Femi Gbajabiamila Conference Centre on LASU's main campus in Ojo, Lagos.

Training Participants 

The opening ceremony took place from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m while the first session began at 8:00 a.m with registration for the already selected participants. 

This training aims to equip LASU staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide comprehensive support and services to SGBV survivors. Participants learnt the various aspects of Gender-Based Violence in emergency situations and how to deliver effective and trauma-informed care.

This collaborative effort between LASU, UNFPA, and CRPSGBV shows the University's commitment to addressing the critical issue of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence and ensuring that its community members have access to the necessary support and resources.
