WOMEN AT RISK INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION” TO OPEN DOORS

  

Women at Risk International Foundation, also known as “WARIF” is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 2016 by Dr. Kemi DaSilva-Ibru MD; MPH in response to the high incidence of sexual assault, rape and human trafficking occurring amongst young girls and women across Nigeria.

The Foundation was established to raise awareness and advocate against this increasing prevalence of sexual violence amongst women and young girls of all ages and its consequences. These effects are both immediate with health and psycho-social risks to the victims as well as in the long-term societal problems that subsequently occur such as poverty, illiteracy, unemployment and the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

"It is our primary social responsibility to ensure that all young girls and women live in a society free of rape and sexual violence. The opening of WARIF Centre by Women at Risk International Foundation -WARIF is the first of many initiatives, that will be set up by the foundation and the first step on it's journey towards achieving this goal." - Dr. Kemi DaSilva-Ibru, Founder, WARIF

The first initiative of the foundation is to target the urgent needs for these survivors by establishing a Sexual Assault Referral Centre: The WARIF Centre.
