Rakibul was awarded a $5,000 Women Deliver seed grant, made possible by Johnson & Johnson, to implement his project entitled “Peacempire.” Peacempire project will use digital storytelling and advocacy workshops on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights to reduce the rate of Early Forced Marriage (EFM) and Violence against Women (VAW) involving young people. The project will also form a coalition bringing together SRHR experts, traditional leaders, political quarters, administrative bodies and survivors in monthly social campaigns on major streets of the area. The goal is to build the capacity of young advocates to effectively respond to EFM and VAW incidences through citizen journalism and digital media to ensure legal interventions and public engagements.
