Challenge

In Liberia and more so in Monrovia, teenage pregnancy is on the rise. Girls hardly reach high school due to early pregnancy and poor health system. Moreover, these girls are exposed to sex for grades, and their male school mates also stand as a threat to their health. unwanted pregnancies, coupled with lack of information on essential support during puberty are lacking both in school and in the general community.

Solution

This project will support these vulnerable girls to stay in school by providing them gender based violence training, organize them in health clubs and coach them to avoid unwanted pregnancies and other forms of gender based abuses both from the school environment and from the general community. The clubs will serve as a social nest for awareness creation while debates and sporting events will help amplified voices and community support for the project.

Long-Term Impact

This project will reduce teenage, increase school performance for girls and promote girl to girl peer learning and information sharing.
