An NGO, Alliance for Africa, has called on stakeholders to form strong synergy and take concerted efforts to stamp-out Gender Based Violence (GBV) and Sexual-Based Violence (SBG) in the South-East.

The Programmes Officer of the NGO, Miss Faith Kalagbor, made the call during a Strategic Meeting on the Popularization of the “Kpoturum” Web Application Amongst Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and State Actors in Enugu and Ebonyi States, held in Enugu on Friday.

Kalagbor said that the issue of case management of VAWG was such that not only one CSO or government agency/ministry/office cannot handle alone.

According to her, there is a need for collaboration to get justice for victims by using the strength of each of the stakeholders and ensuring elimination of duplication and fostering greater synergy.

It would be recalled that “Kpoturum” App is a technological reporting tool for documenting cases of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), which included GBV and SBV in South-East, Nigeria, launched in December 2021.
