NYSC CAMP OUTREACH

Intersex Nigeria took a step forward in promoting awareness and equality by visiting the NYSC orientation camp in Lagos. The focus was on educating young persons on the significance of understanding sex characteristics and gender, intersex existence and the need for awareness to create visibility, debunk myths and misconceptions. The team also emphasized intersex issues, challenges, needs, and the importance of preventing discrimination and fostering inclusion at all levels.

Through an enlightening session and insightful discussions, Intersex Nigeria addressed the pressing issue of Intersex Genital Mutilation, aiming to put an end to this harmful practice.
