When Boys Stand Up for Girls!

By Trizah Waiyaki | Operations and Development Director

On October 12, we commemorated the International Day of the Girl with over 300 High School Students that we work with in Kibera - Africa's largest slum, celebrating the girl force that is unscrippted and unstoppable and encouraging the girls to move from dreaming to achieving. With most of the students having gone through our violence prevention program, we use the workshops and storytelling platforms at this event to affirm and apply the lessons learnt.

At the beginning of the program over 50% of the students believe that it's a man's right to have sex with a woman and we have the daunting yet fulfilling task of correcting this notion and teaching them consent. Seeing the boys celebrate and treat the girls with dignity at the International Day of the Girl is a priceless reward. One of them said "We are here to support you. Don't hesitate to let us know if you need any help".

Through your continued giving, we will reach even more High School students and build a movement of a young generation of advocates who will change the narrative in their communities and contribute to ending the cycle of sexual violence!
