Sensitising boys to promote gender justice in Nigeria

African Focus for Youth Development (AFFYD), a member of MenEngage Nigeria, had a two-day training in February to engage young men in Kano State on how to advocate for women’s rights, rights of vulnerable groups, and gender justice. AFFYD Executive Director, Emmanuel Gabari, said boys and men have an important role to play against gender-based violence. Gabari said he hopes the two-day training would help change the mindsets of young boys and men to make them see girl children and women as part of them.
