Join The Advocates In the Fight Against Domestic Violence

We introduce to you The Advocates, a non-profit organization created with an intent to Speak Against Domestic Violence. The Advocates is pioneered by the Top three female Contestants of the Next Titan Entrepreneurial TV show Season II - Ajumoke Nwaeze, Osas Air and Lolade Fanimokun. The organization sprung up as a task to identify and spread a social responsibility message on a social vice in the society, within 48 hours.

The young entrepreneurs and Advocates collaborated with  Lagos state Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs, Lagos State Ministry of Justice, and other reputable organizations in order to execute this mission effectively.
They visited The University of Lagos, Yabatech, TVC, EKO FM, crowded bus stops and other places to create awareness on the fight against Domestic Violence of all forms - Battery, Child Abuse, Rape, Assault and others.

The Advocate Creating Awareness on TVC "Your View"
It is no news that Domestic Violence is on the rise, despite the modernization, and fight against violence and victimization. This pattern of behavior involves the abuse by one partner against another in an intimate relationship such as marriage, cohabitation, dating or within the family. 

Domestic Violence can be physical, verbal, emotional, economic or sexual abuse, and examples of this act include hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, slapping, throwing objects, controlling or domineering, intimidation, harsh words, neglect, stalking, trespassing, harassment, etc.

The focused of this project is battery, rape and child abuse, which are all inter-related and the objectives of the project are;

Ø  To create awareness on the need to stop Domestic Violence.
Ø  To inspire victims to speak out when violated.
Ø  To offer advice and support to victims of Domestic Violence.

At the end of the task, the efforts of these Ladies would be analyzed and criticized at the boardroom, and a verdict would be given. The success of this task would qualify them to pitch at the Grand Finale on 20th December 2015, where the winner would emerge.
