Spot light : Women Up Coordinator

By Eurelia Andabwa | Project leader

My name is Eurelia Andabwa. I joined Green-Kenya last November as a women's up coordinator.  It has been a nice experience all along first because I used to work with children, especially girls, so working in this environment has been easy for me to maneuver, second being one of the beneficiaries of these kinds of programs, I knew what to touch on when it came to the women's up sessions knowing very well that it is focusing on adolescent girls that campaigns about female empowerment.Green-Kenya has really given me a good platform to showcase my skills and a chance of getting new skills.

Working as a women 's up coordinator managing the session alone last year was a bit tough on my end but this year I am privileged to have a women's up team that I am working with. They have been of great help so far , we have been able to come up with session plans together, coming up with ideas on what activity we should do before the session  to get their concentration to class or session. Also when it comes to the off field and on field session they have been of great help where by when one is conducting the session the other are helping on checking on the girls who maybe for example are having difficulties in spellings or maybe we are experimenting something and not all are getting so the go round helping, The women up team has made work easier for me cause now i don't have to conduct the session alone we mostly alternate.

The program promotes health, safety, education and leadership of girls and passionate advocates around the community which touches on the UNSDGs number 5, Gender Equality. We teach the girls to stand up against harassment, be aware of gender stereotypes and also we touch on health and behaviors that are happening in our community as we all know when you educate a woman you educate the whole nation because child health improves when women and girls have equal access to education .

Working with the girls has been a great opportunity because even most of the time we learn while we teach. The girls' response for the program has been the greatest highlight of our day to day activity, it has really encouraged the coaches to even deliver more quality sessions despite the challenges we face on a daily basis. We have also seen great progress when it comes to openness, when we started the session the girls were shy to open up but nowadays they are willing to share what is happening in their lives and we as coaches are able to respond positively to those that we can at the moment. There has been a great massive growth in terms of numbers and also knowledge wise.

 

Asante sana from Nairobi
