Challenge

The girls are growing up in the hands of their disenfranchised mothers and there alot of vital information and provision that they lack. They know very little about reproductive health and they suffer low self esteem and this affects even their education. They lack provisions to help them during their menstruation periods and so they pretend to be sick so as to hide their shame of their menses showing up as they do normal business. They miss school and take up medicine for false sickness.

Solution

This project exposes them to a 4 days empowerment workshop that will help them know and accept who they are and work to improve their current situations into what they want. It will also expose them to 3 reproductive health workshops annually and also 3 plenary meetings where all their questions are answered. The program will also provide each girl with 6 pants and 9 packets of sanitary towels annually. They are organised into girls clubs and they have peers to contact aa well for any help.

Long-Term Impact

The girls with become self aware and be able to envision and create their life as they want. The girls will understand their reproductive health and be responsible for their own. The girls will not miss school due to menstruation and there gore improve in their education The girls will have their self esteem boosted and as a result, compete equally with others in the community. These girls will emerge empowered to approach life positively and tackle any issue with precision and confidencr.
