SCOEN have been able to engage 123 young people (aged 15-25 years), with their youth leaders and volunteers through a process of interaction, reflection and action.
Participants supported to make connections financial institutions to access credit and capacity building for their rural savings groups.
We significantly increased the number of women and girls at risk of gender-based violence being supported. This was particularly important given the high levels of violence being reported linked to Covid-19 effects.
We recorded increases in women’s confidence with respect to raising their voices, protecting their rights and accessing resources as a result of our work.
We saw an increase in the proportion of men and women participating in our gender programmes who believe it is wrong to commit violence against women and girls.
We want to thank our supporters and donors on this response program. Without your generosity we wouldn't be able to reach these communities.
The SCOEN team believes no one woman deserves to be violated and that attending to each single case helps us build a culture that respects women’s right to safety. We thank all our supporters for sharing your gifts with us. Together we will achieve Gender Equality
