Templars is delighted to support and partner with the WOMEN AT RISK INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION (WARIF) in response to the high incidence of sexual assault, rape and human trafficking occurring amongst young girls and women across Nigeria.
As a firm with a keen sense of appreciation for the role of women in society and a true belief in gender equality, this collaboration puts words to action beyond just celebrating women on the earmarked International Womens Day but also through a sustainable contribution to women at risk both financially and by providing legal support services.
The WOMEN AT RISK INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION (WARIF) was established to raise awareness and address the prevalence of this problem through the development and implementation of a series of initiatives which would provide survivor services through the WARIF CENTRE and community services through the WARIF EDUCATIONAL SCHOOL PROGRAM.
A result of this collaboration extends beyond financial support to the provision of legal services to the WOMEN AT RISK INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION (WARIF) by acting as In-House Counsel to the foundation. We at Templars believe in the endless possibilities of this partnership in fostering a gender inclusive society as this resonates with our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability strategy.
