Challenge

EVA has been supporting safe space sessions for adolescent girls and young women(AGYW) in two communities in Kaduna state. These sessions were facilitated by 10 AGYW trained by EVA to build AGYW capacity on bodily autonomy knowledge, life skills, and Sexual and Gender Based Violence. The 291 AGYW who have benefited from this program have expressed the need to be economically empowered and access formal education to further build their self-esteem & enable them to participate in decision making.

Solution

EVA will train 100 AGYW on different vocational skills and link them up to economic empowerment opportunities in the state and support 50 AGYW to access formal education. We will partner with the state education board and the state Ministry of Women Affairs to ensure the AGYW participation in vocational training and enrolment back into school to complete their education and change the outcome of their life.

Long-Term Impact

Outcomes; Improved economic abilities of adolescent girls and young women: Through training on livelihood skills the girls will be equipped with knowledge and skills to improve their income-earning abilities and linked to economic opportunities in the state to start their business. Improved educational status: Successful enrolment in school will mean that the girls have another opportunity to complete their education and change the outcomes of their lives.
