Advancing Human Rights of Female Prisoners

BRIEF INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT

CAPIO is currently implementing a VOICE funded project titled “Advancing Human Rights for Women Prisoners in Nigeria”. This project was borne out of the need to address peculiar human rights challenges faced by women and their children in incarceration.

The project seeks to achieve two (2) broad goals:

  • To persuade relevant authorities to adopt and sustain gender sensitive principles in prisons management in Nigeria, and
  • To facilitate improvement of detention conditions for women prisoners via demanding accountability from duty bearers and organize relevant campaign activities.

This project has a nation-wide reach and is implemented across prisons in the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
