TCF Flashlight Actions on Girls’ Safety (FLAGS)

Flashlight Actions on Girls Safety (FLAGS) is a 3-year (May 2021 – May 2024) project funded by the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Girls giving support to 750 marginalised adolescent girls between the ages of 10-19 in 10 communities of the FCT, Nasarawa and Niger states. The project aims at educating girls on Gender Based Violence (GBV) prevention and response in their communities which was exacerbated by COVID- 19 becoming a shadow pandemic in the form of incest, familiar danger, intimate partner violence, rape, early and forced marriages etc.

Gender Based Violence survivors will be linked to multi-sectorial response services such as Health officers, FIDA and the Police.  The project will be working with community leaders, men, women, boys, and girls to create robust awareness on gender-based violence, prevention and response in the COVID-19 context.

FLAGS project kicked off in TCF with a virtual Program Management training held with the program team, advocacy visits paid to community stakeholders such as faith and traditional leaders to introduce the project and to get their buy-in and valuable contribution towards a successful outcome/implementation of the project. They were happy and pledged to support the project’s implementation to achieve its outcomes and make communities safer for adolescent girls.
