Income Generating Activities Supporting Pascalia


Small Income Generating Activities Supporting Pascalia

Pascalia Chepkorir is one among 6 girls whom Juhudi is helping to start up small income generating activities. Pascalia dropped out of school in form two and was forced into marriage after getting pregnant and could not continue with her secondary education. She found a boyfriend who helped her bring up her kid but, she got pregnant again. This forced her parents to chase her out of the house due to their culture. She sought refuge from her step-brother from where Juhudi is supporting her do small business of selling vegetables. ‘At least my life is having meaning now. I hope one day I will go back to school or a tailoring college’ Pascalia

The last 3 months Juhudi has been working along the Cherangany Hills and across the Marakwet and Pokot ethnic communities, where girls are forced into Female Genital Mutilation leading to school dropout. As the girls escape from this act or forced marriages, they seek refuge in the safe communities where Juhudi then finds them and offer them support.

We appreciate your continued support, without which Pascalia and other girls would not have had a taste of better life.

We are now providing short-term income generating support to our beneficiaries especially those who have children. What do you think about this!
