Challenge

Kiandutu slum and its neighboring areas have for long been fragmented from development agendas and are faced with challenges of poverty, high rate of crime, structural conflicts, drugs and substance abuse, high prevalence of prostitution cases and HIV and AIDS . This project sees the gender equality and women empowerment not only a matter of human rights, but as tool to mobilize the development potential of the whole community.

Solution

Angaza uses football as tool for empowering girls and gender equality activities. Therefore, in addition to engaging girls through sports, Go sisters project intervenes on; gender equality and gender consciousness, gender based violence, reproductive health, female circumcision, drug abuse, HIV and AIDS, STI's, teenage pregnancy etc. The project also increases future opportunities for the beneficiaries by ensuring secondary education and providing entrepreneurship, ICT and leadership training.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term goal is to educate and empower new generation of young women who have the skills needed to effect positive change in their lives and the whole community. The project aims at changing how the community thinks about girls by transforming girls in Kiandutu slums to be role models and change agents in Kenya and remarkable examples allover the world.
