Community Girls Clubs

By Angeline Makore | Project Coordinator

Sexual health education session
Sexual health education session

With the funds raised we were able to launch a jewelry making activity within already existing community girls clubs.We bought the raw materials needed to kickstart the projects such as pearls, beads , needles and threads.And the project currently have 50 girls and young who are enrolled for the trainings.This is being done in Budiriro a high density suburb where they are less opportunities available for women and girls as they live in extreme poverty. The project seeks to impart a skill that will improve their economic standing.

In addition we also carried out sexual reproductive health education with girls within two clubs. We interacted with them and taught them about the ABCD method (Abstinence, Being faithful, Condomizing and Disclosing of status and treatment) of HIV/AIDS prevention, some funds were used to purchase refreshments and notepads.

With the availability of funds we intend to introduce more cocktail of activities within the community girls clubs which will cater for the holistic needs of young women and girls. Importantly by empowering them with sustainable tools and solutions.

Chido* is a 15 year old girl who dropped out of school due to financial strains to pay school fees. She was introduced to one Community Girls Club by a friend.During her first attendance she was shy and always drawn back in program participation.One of our volunteers noticed her behavior and she decided to talk to her privately.She opened up about the financial constraints at home and how dropping out of school was affecting her mental wellbeing.Together with professional counselor(s) we started by doing one on one sessions with her and organized for a volunteer tutor who is assisting her educational needs whilst we source for her school fees.She is now jovial and happy all the time as she now has a sense of belonging in a community where people show compassion and work on viable solutions to societal challenges.

We thank you for you continued support and we shall keep on updating you on the ongoing activities of the project.
