We are extremely grateful for allowing us to continue supporting women and girls in this part of our world. without your generosity, we would not be able to have the impact that we are currently reporting.
This quarter has been quite a learning experience for us as an organization. so many lessons were learned and bridges were built all for achieving our goal of positively enhancing the lives of women and girls.
Through our different partners, we have conducted leadership training for student councils, and school-going girls and have been able to distribute sanitary towels to enable girls to be dignified during their menstruation.
In Garissa county, we have directly experienced the negative impact of climate change. The prolonged drought had caused an increase in rape and other forms of gender-based violence. we partnered with Global Fund For Women to respond to this crisis by distributing food items to the affected homes.
As for the leadership center, we have completed the flooring by adding tiles, cementing the entire wall, and buying the doors and windows which will be installed in a few days to come. The building of the center is almost complete with few touches left.
This center will be the first leadership hub for women and girls in Garissa and we are excited about the number of women and girls we will be able to reach come next year. The opening and the launch of the center are set to be done in early January.
lessons and topics to be taught are being prepared and we are looking forward to a brighter future for our pastoralist women and girls.
We appreciate all your support and we hope to continue being in solidarity with one another in building a better world where women and girls have equal opportunities in achieving their goals.
