BAOBAB for Women’s Human Rights

BAOBAB for Women’s Human Rights (BAOBAB) is a not-for-profit, nongovernmental women’s human rights organisation, which focuses on women’s legal rights issues under the three systems of law – customary, statutory and religious laws – in Nigeria. The organisation operates from a national office in Lagos, with outreach teams in 14 states across Nigeria. BAOBAB’s stated mission is “to promote women’s human rights principally via improving knowledge, exercise and development of rights under religious laws, customary laws and statutory laws”. Baobab works with WLUML to support women human rights defenders, including sexual rights activists working in Muslim contexts.
