Update and support appeal

The project approach builds on community knowledge, experience, empowers communities to promote positive change for the benefit of all. Grandmothers have great influence on their families; experience & wisdom is respected; are culturally responsible for socializing adolescent girls & make lasting changes.

“A house without a grandmother is like a road that goes nowhere.” –Senegalese proverb. We see culture as a unique and dynamic tool for improving communities. This promising practice has collaborated with our strategy to implement programs engaging a long-standing community resource: grandmothers. By identifying grandmother leaders, providing them with tools and training, and strengthening intergenerational relationships, the project works to improve educational opportunities for children, create inclusive nutrition and health programs, and encourage sustainable development.

Young and adolescent girls face various constraints related to female genital mutilation (FGM), early/forced marriage, teen pregnancy and opportunities for formal schooling. This is a unique opportunity to connect two generations while seeking an indigenous solution to the challenges faced by this community. This program reaffirms the status of the grandmothers in the community and the extended family.
