Genesis House

Genesis House, an arm of Freedom Foundation, is a female Residential Rehabilitation and Resource Centre in Lagos. It was established in 2006, with the mandate to transform the lives of ex-commercial sex workers. We have since over the years, expanded the program to support other vulnerable young women within the ages of 18-25 years old, who have been sexually abused, exploited and trafficked.

Sexual exploitation  and trafficking of young girls / women is an alarming and growing trend in Nigeria, that cuts across every ethnic, religious, age and socioeconomic group and carries devastating social, emotional and economic consequences through its impact on health, educational attainment and crime.

At the Genesis House, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Therefore, the program is tailored to deliver client-specific solutions in an intensively therapeutic and highly supportive environment that provides physical, emotional and vocational support that they need to get their lives back on track.

Genesis House’s mode of intervention is Rehabilitation, Education and Empowerment, which is broken down into 5 stages over 12 – 18 months, encompassing counseling, therapy, social & educational enrichment, vocational job training and job placement assistance towards economic self-sufficiency. This is highlighted in our Beneficiary Journey Map below

Our sustainable success requires the collaborative efforts of all,  and we seek support through cash or in-kind donation,  recruitment of volunteers/mentors and corporate partnerships.

Our interventions focus on behavioural, emotional, social, and educational reformation along with counselling and psychotherapy to help young women overcome their past life experiences.

Most importantly, we offer a chance at a promising future!

Our Process

In order to achieve this, we utilize a ‘multidisciplinary’ team working to encourage behavior change and build internal skills in our clients.
