Kakenya Center for Excellence(KCE) staff are busy preparing for the upcoming Health and Leadership training this week! We look forward to sharing our successes and challenges with you soon! In the meantime, we would like to remind you of how important educating girls is to global development.
KCE uses a holistic education model as a national development tool. The United Nations released their goals for global sustainable development by 2030; listing 17 goals that every nation must reach in order to obtain sustainable development. Goal number four is to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning; including the equal access to education for girls.
Our health and leadership training uses an informal experiential learning approach to educate community members about the benefits of educating girls and the reasons to avoid harmful traditional practices of FGM and early forced marriage. The goal of our health and leadership training is to eradicate harmful cultural practices through community engagement. So far, we have educated 5,155 girls about their sexual and reproductive health and rights and 3,000 girls and boys from 55 neighboring schools have received transformative knowledge through our Health and Leadership Training. One hundred percent of girls who have attended our boarding school have avoided the painful experience of FGM and early forced marriage.
KCE believes that a holistic education model is the most capable of achieving the United Nation’s goal number 4 of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals; our Health and Leadership Training is an important part of this holistic approach to education.
