GIRLS EMPOWERMENT PROJECT

This is also an ongoing youth sexual and reproductive health rights and violence prevention project. We recognize the challenges that confront in and out of school youth with respect to knowing their rights and having access to services, knowing about the laws including the Children’s Act, and importantly the laws that prohibit sexual abuse. This project is therefore aimed at increasing knowledge, life skills, advocacy capacity and agency of Adolescent girls on sexual violence issues and enabling them to report abuse and access Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Services while at the same time engaging boys to be advocates of gender equality. The project has so far established 10 School Girls Clubs and will be establishing another 20 clubs in the next 3 years with the support of Crossroads International. It will also establish/strengthen 30 Girls Clubs and 30 boys Networks with the support of the Palladium group.
