Philanthropist extraordinaire and gender advocate, Rev. Funke Felix-Adejumo has restated her unwavering commitments to finding lasting solutions to issues of domestic abuse against women through her Another Chance Initiative. The 5-Day symposium focuses on abuse itself while also exploring its causes, prevention, effects and healing.

Recall that the high incidence of domestic abuse meted out against women across the world, including Nigeria, has become worrisome, especially against the backdrop of recent developments in the country. A recent study reveals that almost 1 in 4 women report cases of abuse from a partner in Nigeria.

It is not surprising why this monster (Domestic Violence) has become an unattended scourge in society with far-reaching adverse consequences such as physical, mental, health and the socioeconomic wellbeing of the abused.

The president of the Funke Felix-Adejumo is being joined by discussants from a wide pool of thought leaders, ministry leaders and social advocates. Some of them include Franklin Mondo, Christy Bature, Bishop Felix Adejumo, Kathy Kiuna, Praise Fowowe, Jerry Eze, and many others. The symposium, which has started today, Monday, April 18, 2022 is live-streamed across various online platforms.
