Challenge

Adolescent girls in South Sudan face significant challenges; early pregnancies, early and forced marriages and disease infections. Historically not supported in their education as they are seen as source of income by marrying them off, access to sanitary pads is a challenge given the high poverty rate coupled with the long political unrest in the country. Only few girls are able to finish primary education. 500 unprivileged adolescent girls in Yei will directly benefit from this project.

Solution

Indigent Development Organization empowers the adolescent girls by creating awareness campaigns in schools, organize community dialogue forums and conduct radio talk shows where the girls are hosted in order for them to feel confident in becoming role models in their communities to talk for themselves against harmful traditional practices. Providing sanitary kits to the girls to help them overcome the problem of missing classes during menstruation periods.

Long-Term Impact

The project will directly empower 500 unprivileged adolescent girls allowing them to overcome cultural and financial barriers to education, which will enhance them continue with their education and become productive members of their families and society as a whole.
