Challenge

With a population of 180,000 refugees, 55% of children/youth are out-of-school, girls being most affected, and this is due to limited infrastructures, and social factors such as teenage pregnancy and early marriage. This gap obstructs livelihoods opportunities and increases cases of sexual and domestic violence, and more adolescent pregnancy and forced marriages. Teenage childbearing currently stands at 24% in Kakuma, mostly due to transactional sex.

Solution

This project will provide the follow for refugee women and girls: 1. Develop a 3-phase Vocational Education curriculum consisting of Soft Skills, Core Electives in ICT, Tailoring, English (ESL), and Hairdressing. 2. Promote livelihoods development through training, mentorship, and saving groups

Long-Term Impact

We will provide vocational training to 120 women and girls, thus helping them to access cash-for-work job opportunities, or start their own small businesses, and thus being able to improve their sources of income. We also believe when the women/girls become economically self-reliant, this will help reduce cases of teenage pregnancies, early marriages, and sexual violence.
