WomenConnect continues & new Youthmappers Chapters

The WomenConnect project training training first time smartphone users to map their villages so that girls can be better protected by FGM is going well, despite some issues with poor connectivity.  We have set up WhatsApp groups so that the women can ask questions, and get advice and support.  We are planning follow up training when women will get updated maps to display in their villages next month.  They will also get training on how to set up small businesses in their villages to boost income and show people economic alternatives to FGM.  We are setting up a revolving fund to give women small loans and they will get business advice and follow up via the WhatsApp group and follow up training.

We have also set up Youthmapper Chapters at SETCO Serengeti and in Muleba so that students in both places can help us map.

And Rhobi, the leader of the FGM activists we are working with was recognised for her achievements last week.  More details are here.

Thank you again for your support for this project.
