SUPPORTING WOMEN TO DELIVER THE CHANGES THEY WANT
Helping marginalised women in Nigeria to live free of violence and determine the course of their lives
Through the generous support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands’ Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW) programme, between 2016 and 2020, Women for Women International will be supporting 11,000 marginalised women in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Nigeria to strengthen agency and self-reliance, and tackle violence.
In Nigeria, women noted significant changes in men’s behaviours following training. Women listed examples of men now helping with household chores, such as fetching water and preparing dinner, that, previously, would have been considered a woman’s responsibility.
Some women also reported changes in household decision-making power.
