"Orange the World" is the theme for the 2020 International Campaign against Gender-based violence GBV which began on November 25, 2020, (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) and is expected to last for the next 16 days.
The mass celebration was followed by a group photograph with priests and all staff of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria community dressed in crested T-shirts for the campaign. On the same day, there was a radio talk show at Human Rights Radio Abuja, where the GBV toll-free number of the organization was shared with the public.
Across the states and in project locations, similar campaign activities are being replicated and Caritas Nigeria staff are expected to engage health workers, clinicians and stakeholders to increase visibility for this year’s campaign against GBV. In addition, all staff of Caritas Nigeria are expected to sign a Gender Based Violence form.
The campaign is expected to come to an end on Thursday, 10th December 2020 with a thanksgiving mass for a successful celebration
