Our Girls' Empowerment program continues to thrive, both at St. Paul's School and a the local public high school. Last week women teachers and mentors spoke with adolescent and young teen girls about health and hygiene, and the girls received Days for Girls kits, thanks to the help of Days for Girls, as well as long-time supporters St. Bart's in Estes Park and Linda Rowe!
In 2016, CHP began the Girls’ Empowerment and Mentoring (GEM) program. This program has reached girls across the community of Petit Trou de Nippes and created dialogue and action on girls’ empowerment, providing mentors and education that girls do not receive in school. Programming confronts the challenges girls and women face in their rural community, providing information, a safe space, and access to a network of supportive women and men. Between two groups of students at St. Paul’s school and two groups of students at the national high school, 100 girls currently participate in GEM with hopes to expand the program in the future.
