In observance of the World Day for the Prevention of and Healing from Child Sexual Exploitation, Abuse, and Violence, Itsekiri NextGen Project conducted an impactful session focused on raising awareness and empowering participants against these prevalent issues. The session addressed prevention strategies and emphasized the importance of speaking out against abuse.

Session Delivery:

The day started with a participant leading the opening prayer, followed by the harmonious rendition of the Itsekiri anthem. Emmanuel Egbe provided a lively recap of the previous session, with participants expressing their enthusiasm to repeat a previously enjoyed game.

Responding to participants’ requests, the coordinator initiated a demonstration game where individuals showcased and guessed various activities, adding an engaging start to the session.

The facilitator, Uwala Tedeye, took the stage to guide participants through the critical topic of child sexual exploitation, abuse, and violence. Using a practical example involving a hypothetical “Good Samaritan,” she skillfully illustrated the potential dangers hidden beneath seemingly benevolent gestures.

Participants actively engaged in discussions about the risks and preventive measures associated with sexual exploitation. They shared their commitment to avoiding potential threats and reporting incidents to the appropriate authorities.

The facilitator underscored the importance of recognizing both genders as potential victims, dispelling misconceptions that only one gender is susceptible to abuse.

To encourage open communication, participants were advised on safety measures, such as avoiding secluded places, being cautious of friendships, adhering to curfew hours, and refraining from staying alone in rooms with adults. The session concluded with an emphasis on the significance of speaking out against abuse.
