Year :2021 Cohort: 3 County: Homabay Background The Train 100 girls project is a program that was designed and implemented by Community Focus Group since March 2018 and has contributed a lot in the lives of teen mothers in Homabay county and other counties. The program’s main objective is to develop skills of teen mothers who have dropped out of school by imparting them with skills on hairdressing, tailoring, beauty, catering, basketry and jewelry making.
The process and the training have brought a lot of change in the lives of teen mothers who have lost hope in life. So far CFG has trained two cohorts in Homabay county from 2018 which included six participants from Homabay county. Homabay 2021 Cohorts In 2021 homabay selected 2 teen mothers to join the training on hairdressing at Elegance salon in Oyugis town. They began their training on the 23rd March 2021 after their orientation by their instructor Pamela. Melvin and Sweery were grateful to join the skill development training after having a difficult experience as teen who dropped out of school.
They joined the training on the 23rd March 2021 with no experience on hairdressing but with the zeal to learn and be productive participants. One of the girls joined when her self esteem was very low and it took her time to become social and start opening up due to traumatic experience that she encountered, being sexually abused that led to her pregnancy. So far, there has been a lot of improvement in their communication skills and their self-esteem has increased. In addition, there has been some progress in their skills development. They can now wash and blow-dry hair well and crotchet artificial dreadlocks. They are still practicing making corn rows and weaving which needs a lot of practice to learn. They believe their passion and commitment to learn the skill will yield results at the end of the six months
