Challenge

Girl Children and youth from poor families areas have difficulties to access sanitary towels resulting in absconding from schools for fear of humiliation. Boys and girls from same family backgrounds also struggle with toiletries and feel unacceptable at school. A number of youth complete grade 12 without basic knowledge of computer more especially those who cannot afford paid computer and internet services. It is difficult to apply online at tertiary institutions or apply for employment

Solution

i) Distribute sanitary towels to 50 girl children and youth in the programme ii) Conduct after school computer lessons and internet services to 200 children in 5 centres two times a week iii) A youth portal will be developed where 200 youth will access career, educational, business and employment information, be able to apply online for free. iv) Life skills and leadership skills will be imparted to youth to be able to take responsibility for their lives v) Youth dialogues will be organised

Long-Term Impact

*The project will teach 200 youth computer skills that will allow them to access their tertiary education and employment * The project will impart leadership skills to 50 youth who will develop as community leaders * The project will also provide sanitary towels and toiletries that will promote the health and well-being of 250 children and youth
