This Project will give a girl in a vulnerable situation an opportunity to come out of her vulnerability. She will remain in School rather than marry early into poverty. She will be empowered with Life Skills to be able to transform her life and set her priorities in the right place, By supporting you are helping to reach boys who otherwise could be perpetrators of gbv on girls, to make them champions and respecters of girl child rights. You will help prevent HIV & AIDS in young girls.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Girls in this region drop out of school early, voluntarily and non voluntarily. Voluntarily because they lack inspiration, mentorship and exposure as they come from poor backgrounds which are often limited. Non-voluntarily because of harmful cultural and religious practices. They are married young and exposed to perpetual poverty, HIV&AIDS, gender based violence among many health threatening issues. Many die very young as a result of these vulnerabilities and their potential cut off.
How will this project solve this problem?
With this project, we will reach girls in this region with Life Skills for them to be able to prioritise education, which is a key to a better life. We will empower them with information pertaining their rights so they can stand against abuse in the school, community and their families.The project will give 5 000 girls the right to protect themselves and a life they deserve. This will be achieved via our school Club programmes which we run in these areas.
Potential Long Term Impact
When girls' lives are improved, the communities are bound to also develop. When we invest in girls and women, we are investing in a future for others as girls who are tomorrow's women always think about others, and not their own lives. Girls as tomorrow's mothers have an influence in the lives of their children and families. It then means there is a culture of development and education in the communities as families are enlightened through these ending all forms of vulnerabilities in society.
