OUR Thematic Area
GAJI’s efforts are focused into two main areas: building literacy and the habit of reading among primary school children, and empowering girls to complete secondary school and succeed beyond that. One of the elements that make this organization unique, however, is the way it goes about its grassroots outreach.
Health & Environment
GAJI’s mission is to ensure that the target groups achieve immediate and sustainable change in their lives. In the area of health, the Organization has planned strategies to improve the health of disadvantaged people in Nigeria as a means for them to escape poverty and improve the quality of their lives.
GAJI organizes grassroots projects and events; and cooperates with other Organizations locally and nationally. Recognizing the value of Nigerian way of life to the world, GAJI actively promotes Nigerian culture and advocates protection of human rights and the environment in which they live.
Peace building is an intervention that is designed to prevent the start or resumption of violent conflict by creating a sustainable peace. GAJI’s peace building activities address the root causes or potential causes of violence, create a societal expectation for peaceful conflict resolution and stabilize society politically and socioeconomically.
Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth. Women make enormous contributions to economies, whether in businesses, on farms, as entrepreneurs or employees, or by doing unpaid care work at home.
Gender Advocacy for Justice Initiative (GAJI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political, non-religious and voluntary organization in Nigeria. GAJI is an Organization dedicated to improving the well being of women, children, youth and other vulnerable groups and passionately, giving particular attention to Education, Health issues, Human Right, Peace Building and Empowerment Programmes.

GAJI has designed a strategy of reaching out to young girls and boys in an effort to sensitize them on the dangers and importance of Menstrual Hygiene and how more productive they cab be during Menstruation.
As part of the organization's mission and vision statement, GAJI carried out this intervention in Ikpayongo, and the reactive cases were referred to the appropriate facility and have been placed on retention.
Apart from the global hand washing days, were GAJI effectively participates, GAJI also ensures sustainable change as we consistently train secondary and primary school students on how they can wash their hands.
