Challenge

Worldwide, 7.3 million of the births are by girls between the age of 15 and 19 years of which two million births of this are by girls under the age of 15. According to UNPF of the two million births, 90 per cent of them are already in marriage. More alarming is that 26 in every 100 girls in Kenya are married before they reach 18 years. The girls are not guaranteed basic right to education & are vulnerable to drop out of school and be child mothers making the pastoralist girls more at risk.

Solution

The project will provide access to education for the 25 vulnerable girls through access to basic education, provision of sanitary pads and other essentials. They will also be engaged through football & life skills training. The girls & women will also receive training on being themselves, being healthy, being empowered and knowledge about money giving them confidence and enable them to have a voice and choice. It will give girls a chance to have skills that will help reduce their vulnerability.

Long-Term Impact

HODI will provide access to basic education 25 girls in 10 secondary schools allowing them to rise above the risk of child marriages, FGM & beading. This will enable them to help support themselves and their families thereby breaking the cycles of poverty. It will also provide the girls with football skills that will enable them to conquer their body mind and soul. They will be great women leaders who are confident & are better decision makers as we build resilient communities in Northern Kenya
