    By - Susan Gross - Executive Director, One Village At A Time

    By - Ginger DeShaney - Project Leader

    By - Susan Gross - Executive Director, One Village At A Time
    One Village At A Time, in conjunction with KMET, uses a reproductive health specialist to teach the girls about their bodies.
