Based in Lagos, Nigeria, HACEY works to improve the health of under-served communities. It works with various stakeholders such as government institutions, communities, and civil society groups as well as private sector companies and the media to reach out to those whom they wish to serve. The staff at HACEY dedicates itself to supporting women, children, and youth by helping them live better lives via education, advocacy, and public awareness.
EMpower’s first grant to HACEY supports their development of an app intended to facilitate reporting of gender-based violence and connect affected young women with required support and relevant services. It will also help expand their training and counseling space for adolescent girls as well as improve its “Back on Track” program. This grant was made in collaboration with the Stars Foundation as part of the With and For Girls Collective.
