Summary

Under the name Go Girl, partners of The Constellation in Cameroon, Ghana, India, Indonesia and Kenya have joined hands after signalling a growth in (unwanted) teen pregnancy in their countries. The same thing is happening in several places in the world, possibly as a result of school closures and other lockdown measures in response to the covid-19 pandemic. In those locations girls drop out of school and their health, livelihood and safety is at risk. A cultural sensitive intervention is needed.

Challenge

A growth in (unwanted) teenage pregnancy has been signaled, possibly as a result of school closures and other lockdown measures in response to the covid-19 pandemic. Girls drop out of school and their health, livelihood and safety is at risk. A cultural sensitive intervention is needed in order to help girls in those communities to flourish, in spite of the current circumstances. This will need adapted behaviour and action from the community as a whole.

Solution

Engaging youth and communities in sites in five countries, will: - Build trust with youth to empower them to break taboos - Make the issue a topic of conversation in the larger community. - Give insights into the causes of teenage pregnancy & school drop-out - Discover the community members own strengths & explore how these can help the progress of the cause - Youth find their own solutions with available resources - Facilitators link the youth to resources to help their own actions

Long-Term Impact

In Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, India and Indonesia we aim have a long term sustainable solution which: * Empowers children by education * Reduces school drop outs * Reduces teen pregnancy rates * Improves community action
