VAP Wins 2020 Beyond Sports Global Award

By Nancy Njeri | Principle

Beyond Sports Award
Beyond Sports Award

Vijana Amani Pamoja was awarded the 2020 Beyond Sports Global Awards in the 'Reduced Inequalities' category which is part of the UN Global Goals #10.The award was as a result of the organization's involvement in working with pregnant adolescent girls and young mothers from marginalized and unsafe settings in the urban areas of Nairobi.The program uses a girl-centric model to create a safe space that focuses on life skill education,parenting,support and income-generating activities.Majority of the participants live in overcrowded urban areas with run-down housing and high levels of poverty,face considerable risks affecting their education, health and well-being. Already at risk for teenage pregnancy, the young girls are also vulnerable to forced marriage, unprotected sex and rape, HIV and other health issues.The pregnancies contribute to a high school drop-out rate as the girls are frequently forced to halt their education.This makes life even more precarious as they have fewer skills and job opportunities to enable them to provide for their new families."On behalf of the entire VAP family,we want to express our utmost THANK YOU message for your continous donation and support.We truely couldn't have made it without your generous support.We additionally wish you and your loved ones a HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON AHEAD" Ann,program cordinator.
