We launched Africa’s First Boys Club Against Gender-Based Violence and a manual for Boys, with a 24 Week Learning Track for them.

We had in attendance Hamzat Lawal, Founder of Connected Development, Mr. AbdulAzeez from Voice [Oxfam In Nigeria], The Permanent Secretary of Lagos State Ministry of Education, Lagos State Commissioner for Youth and Social Works and Mr. Fela Bank-Olemoh [Senior Special Adviser to the President on Education Interventions].
