The Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) programme helped gender-focused civil society organisations (CSOs) to group together in a coalition to jointly address and create awareness about the increasing cases of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Kano and Lagos states.

To better understand the increasing numbers, a monitoring plan was developed to track cases and statistics, relying on data available from the Nigeria Police and the Federal and State Ministries of Gender Affairs. The coalition then coordinated a mass outreach campaign funded by a small grant from ACT. The primary aim was to raise awareness about the increase in VAWG during the pandemic, using evidence from the data collected and translating the data into easy-to-read infographics and prevention messages.
