Dear Friend and partner
We are is excited to speak to you again about the amazing and impactful work that you are doing in our community through your generous contributions.
Positively speaking, as we approach the end of the year, we cannot help but be amazed by how far we have come. The outbreak of Covid-19 created a lot of anxiety and uncertainties. With a lot of questions on how to implement the training for health and human rights promoters given the common priority to protect of keeping the community safe from Covid-19, we continue to brave through the period through reinventing and innovating safer ways of engaging the members of the community on how to end female genital mutilation and other forms of domestic violence, teenage pregnancy, child abuse, and improving access to life skills education.
Over the past few months, we have severally engaged on radio and social media for creating awareness on the health effects of Female Genital Mutilation and other forms of Gender-Based Violence, and child abuse. Although we have used this form of media in the past, what we love about it especially now as that it has enabled us to engage more actively on the issues we are advocating on at a mainstream level. Through this, we have gotten feedback on the effectiveness of the approach. Also, the platform has allowed us to gauge the change in perception among the community on FGM, other forms of GBV, child abuse, teenage pregnancy, and the need for life skills education. We believe that this is important because the feedback will guide our next steps. Furthernore, it has supported us in creating relationships and networks with the media sector.
As we chart the way forward and learning to cope with the new normal of implementing our activities, we remain grateful that you choose to accompany us in this journey. Remember to share our work with your friends and family for them to see the smiles that you put on our faces.
Lovingly, Hope Foundation for African Women team
