To mark the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, the wife of the Governor of Kaduna State, Aisha-Ummi Garba El-Rufai set up a campaign to protect vulnerable persons against sexual abuses and other forms of violence in the state.
To this end, she established the #ummielrufaisgbvchallenge! in order to facilitate and sustain the activities of the campaign.
Speaking during the campaign, the wife of the governor said she found it necessary to encourage CSOs, cluster of volunteers, individuals and the entire members of communities to share the responsibility of ensuring that our vulnerable people are protected against Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV).
“We all need to be advocates and actors in the fight against SGBV because our girls, boys, women and persons with special needs all need to be protected,” she declared.
