The most marginalized girls in Kenya have traditionally been identified as coming from the ASAL (Arid /Semi-Arid Lands) regions. School enrolment in these areas is significantly lower whereby only 30% (Net Enrolment Ratio) of girls enter primary school, out of which only 16.5% complete this level of education. When it comes to Secondary enrolment, the representation of girls is minimal. These girls are affected due to a number of factors ranging from cultural and social barriers.


She-Advance project will organize Holiday Camps where girls will be involved in off school scheduled girl mentoring camps to avoid undergoing FGM, and Early Marriage during school holiday. Girls self-esteem will be raised through training on leadership and mentorship and they will develop healthy relationships among themselves. Motivational speakers, positive role models engaged to talk to girls.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 100 girls to be resilient and live a dignified life. It will build the self esteem and overcome negative cultural practices.
