Girls empowerment is one of our co-mandate. We give girls opportunity to be leaders in different capacities they have trained.Some of them are leaders in schools and in the church.During this holiday we organised 3 days leadership training for them. We trained them on how to be good leaders at the school. Girls from different schools that we work with came together to share their experiences and expectations as future leaders. Just to mention a few; they expect to be great leaders and in different capacities. That they will teach their peers and assist them achieve their goals.

The training helped them to express themselves and shared their challenges.Some of the challenges they outlined are; lack of sanitary towels,personal effects,exposure e.t.c.

As organisation we have decided to engage in this training sessions and assist the with basic needs they need so that they can stay in school.I want to thank you our donors for your continued support towards this girls project.The demand and expectations are high from them but the little resources we get from the well-wishers will assist them.Thank you so much.

Dear Donors,

It is with great honour to write to you after your immersed support towards our project. We delighted to inform you that we had an activity with girls during half-term break. We provided them with sanitary towels and have a talk with them. The event was successful because of your support that you continue supporting us. We had over 40 girls who turn up.

We noted that most of this girls lack this essential things due to poverty whereby parents can't provide for them. When they lack them, most of them tend to be provided with their boyfriends whereby they end up getting pregnant in exchange of money and such things.

With this regards we wish to thank you so much for your continued support.Be blessed.

It was a great day for our girls after receiving sanitary towels as they break for christmas. We had an annual sport festival where it brought togther girls and children for sports. We had a number of sports activities which includes football,egg race,tag of war,sack race among others. It was a one day activity that started from morning to the evening. We invited somebody to talk to our girls about sexuality and other related diseases. Girls opened up and shared what they go through. We gave the girls the pads and soaps to help them at home so that they cannot depend on their boyfriends who are after their body. However, the sanitary towels and soaps were not enough for them,we intend to buy more for them when the money are available.

As organisation we are trying our best to make sure this girls are safe by educating them and helping them with necessary basic needs. We therefore i appeal to you our able donors to support us so that we can help this girls so that they cannot get pregnant while they are still in school. We also thank you for your continued generous support towards this project.

It is with great honour to report back to our partners for the good work you have done since the inception of this project.The project has helped many teenage mothers who had dropped out of school. Today we are celebrating their achievement after accepting to go back in school and complete their secondary education. I want to share the impact of the project. These year we managed to get atleast 5 girls joining university to pursue their dream courses in different university in Kenya. Chebo is one of the girls who promised not dissapoint us. She managed to get a B plain grade in her KCSE exam last year. She has joined Nairobi university to study Bachelor of Education Arts. As organization we look forward to support her until she completes her education.

On behalf of the organization i want to thank everyone who has supported this project. If you were not you people those girls would not have reached where they are now. 

We are planning to enrol other girls to the project because there is alot of girls who have dropped out of school due to pregnancy and lack of school fees.
