Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, a public servant with over 10 years professional experience currently works as the coordinator of the Lagos State Domestic Violence Response Team (DSVRT). Titilola describes herself as “a daughter, a woman, a wife, a mother, a christian, a legal practitioner and a public administrator.”
However, these are but a few ways to describe a woman who has, over the past four years, ensured that Lagos State paid more than lip service to domestic violence. She has worked in different capacities within the state to improve the well-being of women in danger. Initiated by the Lagos State government, DSVRT has been at the forefront of tackling the problem of domestic violence in Lagos State.
Her drive is simple. She sees herself as a merchant of hope and will work tirelessly until Lagos State is safe for every vulnerable person to exist in. Even the menace of abuse may not be completely eradicated, she is working to drive a culture shift that shapes the way issues of Sexual & Gender Based Violence is viewed by this current generation and those to come.
She aims to achieve goals like being able to give survivors an opportunity to start their lives again and seek closure, drive accountability, guarantee justice, raise awareness to high levels, put an end to impunity, and most importantly, secure convictions that will send shivers down the spines of those who are hard bent on continuing to perpetuate this menace.
