The Mango Tree has continued to ensure that more opportunities are available for the girls and young women as they continue to get supported by the organization through the generous funding from GlobalGiving.
During this reporting period, the Girls for the Future project participated in the 11th graduation ceremony of The Mango Tree Orphan Support Trust Kenya. This saw 20 young women graduating from the different apprenticeship programs (20 girls in beauty therapy; 5 girls in tailoring). A caregiver who also undertook the program was also delighted to graduate as this will enable her to become self-reliant as she starts her business.
The project continues to protect and promote the dignity of the girls through the distribution of sanitary towels. This ensures that they continue staying in school even during their bad days of the month. During this period, through school reproductive and sexual health outreaches in schools, 150 girls benefited from the sanitary towels distribution. Additional 222 adolescent boys also benefited from the health talks sessions.
The project continues to link the apprenticeship girls with attachment, where 6 girls are honing their skills as required in the real world. The girls are expected to proceed to be examined in the next three (3) months to be certified with the National Industrial Trade Association Examinations.
