Ogun RAAMP, Firm, Train 45 on Gender-Based Violence
Forty five Research Assistants in Ogun state have been trained on gender-based violence survey services assessment and mapping.
The aim of the four-day training held in Abeokuta was to enable generation of data to protect rural people from forms of physical, emotional and psychological assaults resulting from project execution at the rural areas.
The training is a partnership effort between a John Hopkins University-affiliated Consultancy firm and the Ogun State Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project.
The participants were trained on the expectations over construction of rural roads and development of market hubs along the road alignments.
The Lead Consultant, Mrs. Chioma Oduenyi, explained that all road construction should not adversely affect the people.
Earlier the Coordinator, Ogun State Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project, Mr. Samuel Onabanjo, emphasised the need to avoid all forms of abuse as a result of labour influx.
The coordinator called for the cooperation of the people to protect them against exploitation.
Some participants including Mr. Bakare Oluwatosin, Temitayo Adeniyi, and Sobowale Abraham described the quality of the training as very high adding that it was very enlightening.
