W.TEC supports the 16 Days of Activism movement for the past 8 years, by organizing online safety workshop for secondary schools girls in Lagos State. The 2017 campaign for the first time featured online safety workshops for ladies too which certainly was a big plus for W.TEC’s annual campaign’s reach and impact. The workshop modus operandi involves a one-hour presentation featuring a two-session program. The first session is an online safety session followed by a side attraction session on self -defense of techniques for females this session indeed is very popular among the participants at every single workshop. The programme was conducted 6 secondary schools with a total outreach of 2,750 girls and 350 women at 2 higher institutions.
