The institution houses 100 young girls from 10-18 yrs old, some who are mothers, have suffered abuse and rejection from their families. They are locked up for protection and released at 18 with little or no education or self worth. This project is to create a space to teach life skills, earn qualifications and facilitate empowerment.

Challenge

These girls, are separated from their babies, deprived of education, privacy and freedom. When they reach 18 years old they are released into the outside world without life skills, and often resort to prostitution, crime and suicide. Their babies also become institutionalised and are denied their basic needs of love, education and identity which creates a perpetual cycle of poverty resulting in further child abandonment.

Solution

Their Future Today will be co-funding with the Government to build a classroom and bakery to enable more rooms for education and vocational training for a 100 girls. We will also have Art therapy classes to facilitate self expression, build self esteem and give emotional support. Our project will improve their education and skills to help them find employment in the community, and with our help, the chance to be reunited with their babies to go on to live fulfilling lives.

Long-Term Impact

The impact of this project will mean 100 abused girls will be helped to find employment, getting them out of poverty to support their own families, reduce child abandonment and become better functioning members of society. We will be filling a gap in the girls educational, physical and emotional care whilst they remain in the institution. Our vision is to help the government support families better by providing relevant support to each family case by case. To find out how go to our website.
