@Regran_ed from @dsvrt - Have you ever wondered what the journey towards complete eradication of Sexual and Gender Based Violence would be if the young citizens of our nation are role players towards this end? #TheKingsClub
Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) has set out in constituting an alliance of trained young boys in schools who would serve as peer educators and advocates of positive masculinity.
The Kings Club, Lagos is an initiative of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) set out to help debunk socio-cultural misconceptions and promote positive masculinity and bring about behavioral and attitudinal change in the minds of young boys in Lagos State.
Secondary school boys were trained as peer educators and pioneers of Kings Club in their respective schools.
The Boys were • Exposed to an increased knowledge on GBV and SRH.
• Able to question dominant norms which promote gender inequities. • Trained to Promote positive SRH behavior and question factors which permit GBV. • Able to debunk myths about gender equality, culture and violence etc. • Able to question prevailing gender norms about dominant masculinities. • Made to consider their own vulnerability to HIV, STIs/STDs & GBV. • Able to recognize their own ‘victimization’. We believe engaging boys is essential for the successful resolution of crises in which they are implicated.
This program would be cascaded to all the 6 Eductaion Districts in Lagos State.
To report any incidence of gender based violence send us a DM @dsvrt, or call 0813-796-0048 or dial *6820#. #TheKingsClub #BoysPlayARoleToo #PromotingPositiveMa­sculinity - #regrann
