We provide youth empowerment initiatives where adolescent girls are encouraged to take charge of their lives. This is done by providing access to resources that transform their consciousness through beliefs, values, skills and attitudes. Girl empowerment is achieved through participation in life skill development, mentorship, role modelling and active involvement in development programs.We aim to improve the quality of life for adolescent girl, while empowering the greater community through:
- Sanitary Pad program
- Life skills development program
The goal of the Sanitary Pad Project is to keep girls in the rural areas from missing school due to their menstrual periods. Rather than using crumpled up newspaper or dirty rags from the garbage, these girls will comfortably be able to stay in school during their period. By keeping a young girl in school, we help lift her and her family out of poverty and the threat of teenage pregnancy while breaking them out of the cycle of poverty for generations to come.
Advocating the physical safety and hygiene of female students and their right to an equal and high-quality education that encourages their interests in staying in school is at the core of what we do.
