IATI Identifier: XI-IATI-5914-1107-SHONGLAP

The program has enabled 75% of the girls to become agents of change within their communities. They raise awareness on communicable diseases, personal hygiene, and proper nutrition. This has translated into improved households. This in turn is beginning to reduce the negative trend of marginalization of girls’education and the poverty that emerges from it. The girls have gone out to schools and shared their learnings on Child rights, life skills, dangers of early marriages and pregnancies. This is expected to reduce on school dropout rates Through Advocacy activities like community outreaches the girls have been able to target social values and cultural norms that promote child marriage and early childbearing. The Adolescent girls have acquired various life skills and Occupational skills. They have become more confident, assertive and are participating more and more in household decision making. Increased Local government and parental participation in the program has been registered.
