Our girls are leading the change

By Grace | Project Leader

As SCOEN enhances awareness of reproductive health rights, services to adolescent girls & young women to undertake intensive educational activities on the use of modern contraceptives to protect against STIs, unwanted pregnancies among 600 women 2600 in-out of school girls in Uganda using youth friendly services, Rights Based approach, focus groups, Adult-centered learning, Peer-to-Peer, Outreaches, table talks, Film & Health Education Talks.

This brief report highlights our greatest achievements, summarizes our financials and recognizes the generosity of our community. It also features the stories and voices of young people.

Among them is Aguti. She is a high school student and advocate for girls' rights in her community.

"For the past 20 months, I have gotten to know myself and my community better in live in—thanks to the adolescent girls and young women who opened my eyes, walked with me and shared stories that sparked my need to see change happen. I now have the capacity, courage and conviction to fight for my rights and the rights of others."

Along with a group of her peers, Aguti successfully advocated for  comprehensive sexuality education in their school. It's finally allowed to be conducted at their school, many time the aspect was againist the community traditions and beliefs.

We recognize that real and lasting change takes time, persistence and a community of support. 

We are incredibly grateful for your continued support excited to embark on works with the targed communities. Together we will equip more girls with critical knowledge, skills and tools to lead healthy, successful and choice-filled lives and advocate for change in their communities.

In appreciation,

Grace
