Itoro Eze-Anaba, Founder of the Mirabel Rape Crisis Center, was recently honoured at the AWP Network ‘Get Connected’ Forum for her dedication, service and commitment to women and girls empowerment in Nigeria.
Founded in 2013, the Mirabel Centre is a sexual assault referral centre established to provide free holistic, high quality medical and psychosocial services to survivors of sexual assault and rape. The centre is managed by Partnership for Justice and is located at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
Mary Olushoga, Founder of the AWP Network stated: “In 2015, Itoro Eze-Anaba was listed as a AWP Network Power Woman for her work. That same year, her organisation was recognised by the network as one of 14 leading organisations changing the lives of Nigerian women and girls. I am, indeed, honoured to have established a platform that recognises African women and girls serving their local communities.
