Intensifying efforts to curb the menace of Sexual and Domestic Violence in Homes in the State and their relentless commitment to raising awareness against violence towards women and girls, the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) has taken its one-day Intergenerational Conversation on triggers of violence in homes to Lagos Island. The enlightenment campaign which was themed ‘Because You Have Experienced It, Don’t Become It.’ had residents and stakeholders in attendance.  Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, the Executive Secretary of DSVA, emphasized the unique importance of the discussion, aiming to bridge the generational gap in understanding the triggers of violence within homes. Represented by the Head of the Public Affairs Department, Mrs. Adejoke Ladenegan-Oginni, Vivour-Adeniyi set the stage for a dialogue focused on fostering understanding and collaboration. This collaborative effort signifies a step forward in fostering understanding and unity across generations in the fight against violence within homes. Mrs. Olayinka Bamidele, the Supervisor for ‘WAPA,’ conveyed a goodwill message, urging all participants to persist in speaking up on issues related to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). She urged parents to also respect the privacy of couples,  allow them to bond together,r and make decisions concerning their homes. She said 3rd- party interference often leads to triggers in the homes.  The collaborative partner for the event, VCARE for Development Foundation, represented by Mr. Peter Fujuno, affirmed their commitment to supporting DSVA in the fight against SGBV. The event showcased a diverse panel representing various age groups and generations.
