To ensure girls club members continue to build their capacity to lead their own development agenda, songtaba has organized experience sharing meeting for 58 girls club mentors (38 males and 20 females) to create a platform for participants to tap in to each other’s rich experience on how to manage girls at their respective communities/schools. The activity had the potential of benefiting 1225 girls from 35 clubs at both Nanumba North and south district.
