Stand To End Rape wins The Hiil Justice Accelerator Programme grant
The HiiL Justice Accelerator Programme , an initiative of the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law which is designed for social justice start-ups across Africa has granted Stand To End Rape (STER) organisation, a spot on the 2020-21 Cohort of its flagship innovation programme.
Focused on equipping start-ups to serve the target audience better, sustain and synthesise their resources maximally, the programme will amplify individual efforts by improving their capacity building, impact measurement, comprehensive development, and operational efficiency.
Billed to run for five months, the HiiL Justice Accelerator programme encompasses training, mentorship, coaching peer-to-peer learning, and other activities to ensure that participants graduate with practical, first-hand insight from experience.
Speaking on this development, STER Founder Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi stated that this selection continues to affirm the organisation’s work. “It also validates the efforts of the young, vibrant and passionate team of Nigerians working to see that justice is promptly delivered, especially for those who otherwise would have been abused and victimised.”
STER is a youth-led social justice organisation advancing gender equality and employing innovative interventions, to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence in all spheres within Nigeria, as well as while changing community perception of sexual violence and gender inequality.
