BRAC Safe Spaces & Loans for Teenage Ugandan Girls

Oct 16, 2008

We've done it!

Thanks to your generous support, all 20 of the safe space centers for girls are now open, and 500 girls are benefiting from weekly meetings where they can interact and discuss issues with other girls and get advice from trained mentors on topics that they may feel uncomfortable discussing, such as pregnancy, menstruation and early marriage. Girls are also encouraged to stay in school and are offered training courses in managing their finances so that they can take out microfinance loans.

As the program has had such initial success in Uganda, we've begun to pilot the same program for teenage girls in Tanzania. Please check out the Safe Spaces & Loans project for girls in Tanzania and continue to show your support!
