Welcome to

Sexual and gender-based violence has become so widespread in Nigeria that its actual daily occurrence as well as the ever-present fear of being assaulted that women and girls face, have become normalized.

The #HerStoryOurStoryNG campaign seeks to challenge the persistent cycle of sexual and gender-based violence in Nigeria.

Directory of SARCs

Currently, there are ONLY 32 Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) across 17 states in Nigeria. All these Centres need more funding commitment from their state governments to continue delivering services to the public, free of charge; and states that don’t have a SARC need government commitment to establish one.

Over 17,000 people have used the services of a Sexual Assault Referral Centre (from July 2013 – Dec 2020).

Data about Sexual Assault Referral Centres

Since the first Sexual Assault Referral Center (SARC) opened in 2013, over 17,000 survivors have received care across 32 SARCs by June 2021.

You can download our analysis of data from all SARCs. These data provide the basis for planning policy and changing practice by government, CSOs and other stakeholders
