“PROJECT R.A.W.” was founded with two major key goals:
- Education Services
PROJECT R.A.W’s prevention and education efforts include working with the entertainment industry, the media, colleges and local communities to help raise awareness about issues related to sexual assault.
Education through Entertainment
The entertainment industry has shown support for PROJECT R.A.W. From stars like OC Ukeje,Blossom Chukwujekwu, Kiki omeili, Korode Bello, Dija, Adesua Etomi, Shaydee, lilian Afegbai, Bryan Okwara, , entertainment provides a great way to reach people with important messages about sexual assault.
Working with the Media
“PROJECT R.A.W.” reaches out to some media houses daily with accurate statistics and relevant messages about sexual assault. In addition, members of the press routinely contact us for expert commentary on pertinent issues.
College-aged women are four times more likely to be sexually assaulted than any other age group. In an effort to raise awareness among college students, PROJECT R.A.W. is currently coordinating “R.A.W. Day” on campuses nationwide. Every September, organizers educate thousands of students through special events and educational wallet cards featuring information about sexual assault.
Survivors Educating Communities
All of PROJECT R.A.W’S education programs reach local communities, but the ⦁ R.A.W Speakers Bureau does so most directly. Comprised of sexual assault survivors, friends and family members from communities all over the country, members frequently share their personal stories with local community groups and hometown media. Hearing about sexual assault from people who have experienced it is a vital element of public education.
“PROJECT R.A.W.” has put programs in place to create awareness on the dangers of being a victim of domestic violence and also of being a perpetuator of domestic violence. We are currently collaborating with the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs, the Federal Ministry of Justice, The Nigerian Police Force and various other like-minded organizations to bring to book perpetuators of these dastardly acts and also to rehabilitate women who have been domestically abused.
