Emilomo Ogbe is supporting the International Organisation of Migration, EqualCity project. The Equalcity project supports local authorities in fostering inclusion and protection of migrants who are at risk, or who survived sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).
The objective of the project is to build capacity of local frontline services through the development of practical training tools and awareness raising material on SGBV. Equalcity is piloted in 4 partner cities: Brussels, Luxembourg, Rome and Gothenburg, with each partner city focusing on one topic and developing one specific toolbox.
Emilomo Ogbe served as a member of the expert panel that reviewed a tool box focused on female migrants. The NGO Femmes en Détresse A.S.B.L, with the support of the city of Luxembourg and the International Organisation of Migration, have developed a toolbox which will focus on violence against migrant women and girls. The toolbox will include training tools that aim at improving the awareness and capacity of frontline workers so that they can deliver more tailored support to female SGBV survivors in migrant communities.
