Challenge

Within 67 rural communities visited by 5 international volunteers serving at CCREAD-Cameroon from April to August 2016, 378 girls dropped out of school because of unwanted pregnancies, 90% of whom became abandoned single and teenage mothers suffering from extreme poverty with continuous vulnerability to sexual violence. It is therefore the hope of this project to organize weekly school base sexuality and family planning workshops.

Solution

During the weekly school campaigns targeting at least 5 schools each week and reaching at least 1,000 students, campaigners will educate teenage girls on the use of contraceptives, ways of calculating their menstrual cycles and how to keep healthy sexual relations without dropping out of school.

Long-Term Impact

Upon completion of these school base workshops, the number of teenage girls proceeding to Higher institutions from rural communities will be increased, schools will mainstream education for sustainable development, access to sexual and reproductive health rights information will be mastered by teenage girls while girls from poor homes will remain in schools.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
