Women Win Partners With Mrembo Program


Impressed with VAP’s Mrembo program (“Mrembo” means “beauty” in Kiswahili and the program focuses on delivering sexual reproductive health messages for girls 12-18 years old), in June, Clementine Klijberg, Resource Mobilization director for Women Win visited VAP’s offices and the Mrembo program. Clementine's visit paved way for VAP to write a 3- year funding proposal to the Dutch Embassy in Nairobi to support the Mrembo program. The proposal that was submitted would see VAP receive approximately Euro 10,000 per year for 3 years.
