Challenge

Girls in our community of Kajiado County face violence and risks that threaten their physical, emotional and social/education development as a result of harmful cultural and traditional practices of communities. These harmful practice include Female Genital Mutilation, Early/forced marriage, Sexual abuse and domestic violence. These violence cases have force many girls from their homes with many desperate girls finding themselves living in threatening environments that expose them to risks,

Solution

The project seeks to provide temporary accommodation to girls that seek support from threatening environments and situation as they seek to resolve their challenges through legal or police protection. Many of this girls have developed emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the painful experiences that they have undergone. The project seeks to provide shelter where they will receive support to enable them cope and manage their future and transition safely back to school.

Long-Term Impact

The girls will develop ability to make informed decisions about their lives and protect them from developing negative coping behaviors such as drug abuse, prostitution, lack of education. The girls will enable the girls to access and complete education both at primary and secondary levels therefore create social and economic stability for their future.
