Invictus Africa, a Nigeria-based human rights enterprise, has released a directory of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) responders and service providers in the country.

The 100-page document, titled Orange Pages, is targeted at women, children, persons with disabilities and other populations in the country who are vulnerable to SGBV and are in need of unrestricted access to individuals, governmental and nongovernmental organisations that can help.

“The Orange Pages: Directory of SGBV Responders and Service Providers in Nigeria was informed by the incessant increase in incidents of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) in Nigeria, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. It complements past and ongoing efforts to curb SGBV and ensure support for survivors,” the organization revealed.

“This alarming and worrisome increase in SGBV necessitates the need for at risk populations – women, girls, children, and persons living with disabilities – to have access to verified and accurate contacts of government institutions, Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs), civil society organizations, and individuals who can be reached by SGBV survivors across Nigeria for assistance, advice, and referrals.”

Orange Pages is the culmination a multi-stage process which began with a Google form on Invictus Africa’s website calling for enlistment of SGBV responders in the country.

Organizations were also gathered from several other civil groups and networks before a two-way verification process to ascertain their credibility and expertise in tackling SGBV issues.

At the final authentication stage, listed organizations were contacted and their digital footprints traced to confirm the accuracy of information provided.
