Challenge

Education is one of the most effective tools in preventing HIV infections. An estimate from the Global Campaign for Education suggests that if every child received a complete primary education, around 700,000 new HIV infections in young adults could be prevented every year. There are several misconceptions and cultural norms that render women vulnerable to HIV. Some of these are; Inequalities within the family where women have few rights within sexual relationships and the family,GBV etc.

Solution

This project will equip girls with correct information and incentives for better health. HIV/Aids education will equip the girls with correct information hence reducing the risk of infection, we believe HIV prevalence can be reduced on women by educating them at tender age. Being in school during their menses will enhance academic performance.

Long-Term Impact

Enhanced academic performance translated to better future, sanitary towels and hygiene education will help girls recover confidence and self esteem.
