Summary

This project provides a safe space and advocacy platform for adolescent girls in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya to fight gender-based violence and discrimination.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Only 1% of girls in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya have access to an all-girl, development program. Young women in the slum aged 15-24 are contracting HIV at a rate 5 times that of their male counterparts. The Binti Pamoja Center creates a safe space for adolescent girls to discuss reproductive health issues and to fight gender-based violence and discrimination. The Center also offers educational scholarships for secondary school, financial literacy training, and peer education training.

How will this project solve this problem?

If we provide scholarships, financial literacy, HIV/AIDS training, leadership skills, as well as a physical, safe space for girls and young women in the Kibera slum, we can help these women lead healthy lives and become agents of social change.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Binti Pamoja Center will provide 100 adolescent girls and young women with a safe space to discuss and tackle gender-based violence and discrimination, supporting them to make educated choices, lead healthy lives, and become community leaders.
