Summary

Many adolescent girls become pregnant because they lack the information needed to make informed decisions about their sexuality, family planning, and reproductive health. This project will provide training for 30 young girls in menstrual and reproductive health. This will give the young ladies the tools they need to make important and educated decisions. This potentially will change the entire course of their future. It could make a huge difference in their future options and opportunities

Challenge

Sexuality and reproductive health education are often not provided in school or in many homes. Consequently, many girls lack the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their sexuality, family planning, and reproductive health. This ignorance is seriously crippling. It negatively affects their preparation for life and decision-making. Girls should not be disadvantaged and in the dark.

Solution

Funds will cover all training costs for 8 sessions including topics such as preparation for puberty, adolescent sexual and reproductive changes, teenage pregnancy community guidance, best practices for managing pain etc. This training will give ladies the knowledge they need to be healthier and have healthier families. Each participant will also receive a printed PDF book on puberty growth and change. Peer-to-peer discussions will help boost understanding and resolve.

Long-Term Impact

This project is helping girls to break out of the vicious cycle that entraps unskilled and resource-poor girls. At-risk girls are maturing into well-educated, emancipated, gainfully employed and self-sufficient women. These empowered women are the pillars of their families, communities and the nation. When the mother of the home is educated, the health, well-being, and success of the entire family is propelled forward and transformed. Educated girls educate the entire nation.
