YOUNG GIRLS EMPOWERMENT FORUM ON EARLY MARRIAGES, PREGNANCIES AND SEXUAL EDUCATION

 Forum objective:

·        To enable participants acquire knowledge on the consequences of early marriages, early sexual activities and resultant early pregnancies

Song and dance prevailed TYSA sporting center as the organisation raised a red flag on early pregnancies, early marriages and school drop out

In a research outcome from the Empowering Rural Girls through Sports project being implemented by TYSA - on problems affecting rural girls, early pregnancies, marriages and school dropout which toped the list were found to be emerging at an alarming rate within four villages 

It emerged from the forum that girls are missing vital information on Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health, lack of protection from community and its institutions, violation of children Rights with impunity, and lack of safety nets for vulnerable girls.  We don’t report cases of abuse, rape or pregnancies to the local chiefs because they are compromised a student

 What needs to be done?

When asked how they thought these problems could be dealt with, they gave the following responses among many others:-

·        In the case of harsh parents, the girls requested that time be found and a session organized to talk to their parents about their plight.

·        As for poverty, it could be tackled by approaching organizations like TYSA and others who can either organise for bursaries or link them up with those who could help them get scholarships for education.

·        We encouraged them that education is good and cited examples of people in the community who have made it in life and are successful after working hard in school.

·        Being married off against their wishes and harassment by male teachers was quite a sad story. One girl stood up and said “When we report to the Chiefs, they are bribed into silencing us, our teachers are also bribed, the police are bribed, we have nowhere to report our cases.”

With such forums on the community, girls have unique opportunities to develop resilience.

Football Unlocks Children Potential

Value Based Football Unlocks Children’s Potential
The children had an opportunity to learn the values of football, life skills through various games and plays. Children en-joyed the sessions especially the games and plays we demonstrated to them. We made their physical education enjoyable and interactive.

Children complemented that this games and plays opened their minds making them to concentrate in class and come to school always. This has made those children who don't want to come in school often to love school. Through the project we have discovered many talents from the four primary schools.

Children have shown their talents through the various activities of value based football. Others are good players, leaders and coaches. They have become a source of inspiration to other children in school and even in their homes. For example Daniel Kipruto is a talented footballer who aspires to play in future in the national team. Over 300 children participated in this weekly program in schools
