16 Days of Gender Activism

By Janani Loum | Director

As part of our work to prevent early marriages, this time we enaged more stakeholders and conducted  5 community dialogue and aareness, with specific focus on prevention of teenage preganancies. 

Since the outbreak of covid-19 and subsequent lockdown and clsoure of schools, teenage prenancies became all time record high in Gulu district. These young girls now face unimaginable problems such school drop-outs, poverty and physical problems due to child birth as their bodies are not fully mature yet. Most may end up in theater as a way of helping them, which places them in danger as well. 

Child Equal Opportunity Uganda together with GIZ civil peace service and other partners carried out 5 community diallogue and sensitization to interact with teenage girls about the problem and how the problem can be reduced.  This happened during the 16 days of gender activism. Action plans were developed during the these events, which will be carried out for future intevention to reduce teenage preganancies. 

Commitment of community tsakeholders were solicited to play key roles in their communities and report to the partners. A consortium was formed with primary work focusing on reducing teenage preganancies. This is expected to scale the drive to end teenage pregancies.
