About Voices for Change (V4C)
Voices 4 Change is a programme funded by UK aid, working to strengthen the enabling environment for gender equality in Nigeria. It commenced implementation on 1 October 2013 and will run until 2017. The programme combines learning from development, learning from communications, behavior change and social marketing.
V4C takes a fresh look at young Nigerians as individuals, not just 'beneficiaries’. The programme capitalizes on current trends in Nigeria, such as the growing access to digital/mobile technology, while seeking also to change some of the more entrenched formal and informal barriers that prevent girls and young women realising their potential.
While V4C’s vision is change that benefits all of Nigeria’s adolescent girls and young women, including the poorest and most vulnerable, it does not set out to directly reach and benefit a sub-set of these. Rather, the ambition is to equip a wide range of young women and men to 'speak up and speak out’ to challenge gender stereotypes and discriminatory social norms.
V4C will identify and support key influencers and enablers to build momentum for change, including changes in how laws are developed and passed. The programme will generate and disseminate evidence to help catalyse and speed the process of change.
