Challenge

In Imvepi refugee camp, most adolescents concur to face a challenge of menstrual hygiene management. Most of them aren't able to access sanitary facilities and their parents aren't in a position to provide them since they are unemployed & do not have a reliable source of income. Some girls said those who are somehow able to do not put menstrual hygiene as a priority. And so, the number of girls dropping out of school and marrying before the age of 18 is really alarming & calls for urgent action

Solution

CECI plans to train most vulnerable teenage mothers & school dropouts on how to start & manage a business to enable them support themselves & their families, and how to turn their ventures into big businesses through savings & loan, and to provide on termly base reusable sanitary pads to 500 school girls (of age 13-20) in Imvepi Camp to enable them stay healthy & optimistic and to continue chasing their dreams.

Long-Term Impact

This project builds entrepreneurial skills that support development at personal, family and community level. By the end of the project, teenage mothers & school dropouts will be able to provide for their personal, family and others' needs while adolescents assisted to manage their menstruation with dignity will live healthy and happy and are most likely to complete school, assist their fellows with menstrual management techniques and champion girl child education in the community.
