Sexual And Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Short Video Competition 2021 for Nigerians

Submit entries for the Sexual And Gender Based Violence (SGBV) Short Video Competition 2021. The Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS is organising a short video competition on sexual and gender-based violence as a means of eliminating its prevalence in society.
