Challenge

MILSCO is currently serving Obunga, Manyatta & Nyalenda Slum. These communities report the highest teen pregnancy (16.2%) and HIV prevalence (8.8%)and sexual and gender violence against women and girls (21.5%). In all these, the girl-child and children are the most affected, and educating and providing a safe space for them is one approach that can address these challenges.

Solution

The Center will also provide safe space with counseling, medical and legal support for survivors of sexual & gender-based violence, including rape, child labor & child marriage before they are returned back to the community.

Long-Term Impact

The Safe safe will offer professional counseling, medical and legal support to the survivors of SGBV before they are integrated back into the society. We will also train the girls on self-defense mechanisms and leadership skills while at the center so they can speak out about what they are going through and take action whenever their rights are infringed upon.
