Empowering young girls
Empowering young girls (1/2)

It takes only your efforts to reach out to young girls. Spending time with vulnerable population brings hope and inspiration to others. It brings a sense of belonging. I find it as a commitment to inspire other girls in my community.

Reaching girls during adolescence is critical—decisions made and behaviors established during this period affect their horizons later in life. Adolescence for boys typically ushers increased mobility and autonomy, but for girls it often comes with increased restrictions —fewer opportunities and less freedom to exercise choice. During this formative period in their lives it is important to provide adolescent girls with the tools they need to become economically empowered young women.

On 14th July 2021 I had to spend time with young girls, age range from 11years old to 20 years  empowering them on issues concerning sexual reproductive health, Leadership and building self esteem and  psychological support...

It was amazing to hearing their stories... And we had great activities and in the end all were happy and believed in themselves that they can make it life.
