Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women

Education as a Vaccine is working on a project to build the agency of Adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). Through this project, 28 adolescent girls and young women have been trained on sexual and reproductive health issues, including gender-based violence as well as the platforms that exist for reporting cases of sexual and gender-based violence(SGBV). The AGYW were selected from 3 different communities in Kaduna State and are between the ages of 15 to 24 years. Due to increased vulnerability of girls who do not have education and skills, the capacity building incorporated vocational training activity where the girls and young women were taught how to make liquid soap to help them build their skill to be self-reliant.

During this quarter, 18 of the facilitators have been able to reach 180 other AGYW in the communities with sexual and reproductive health information, promoting their right to bodily autonomy and their understanding of SGBV issues. EVA has also supported the facilitators to step down the skills acquired during the vocational training to their different cohorts. Through the safe space approach, the girls are able to discuss issues that affect them in their various communities and report back to EVA for more support.

With continuous support and your kind donations, EVA will work with Kaduna state ministry of women affairs to link the AGYW to other opportunities that exist in the state to increase their access to services. These donations will also help to enroll some of these girls who are willing to go back to school.
