Chinyere Eyoh, is the Founder/CEO of Sexual Offences Awareness & Response Initiative (SOAR), a non-profit she started in 2011 in her home country Nigeria. The organisation provides prevention and survivor support solutions on child sexual abuse. In collaboration with traditional and community leaders, she leads efforts at SOAR, in establishing and strengthening Child Protection Committees which respond to widespread sexual exploitation and abuse of children at grassroots levels. She also establishes safe spaces for adolescent girls in schools and communities to encourage confidential disclosures and build their capacity, including survivors, as peer educators against sexual violence. Just recently she began equally creating safe spaces for boys to address issues of sexual abuse of boys as well as gender norms and stereotypes which encourages sexual violence against girls by boys and men.
Chinyere is a published author of “When life just isn’t fair” – a book chronicling her experiences as a survivor of child sexual abuse. “Bimbo’s Pain” – a sexual abuse awareness tool for children and “Why can’t I stop” – the truth about porn and how to break free for young people of faith. She gleans from her experiences as a survivor of sexual violence in passionately serving as a Mentor and Coach to countless teenagers, a role she has worked in for over 18years.
