Our story

Young women for an inclusive society in Human Rights
Our project will benefit young women to continue their studies at the secondary level and empower themselves as community leaders, the young ladies will be equipped with tools on human rights, sexual and reproductive health, political advocacy. Investing in adolescent girls will improve their living conditions in four levels.

  1. Individual level: have better living conditions (Education, Health, Food Security and Sources of employment)
  2. Family level: creating greater opportunities not to continue with the same circle of poverty and educational limitations)
  3. Community level: to develop projects that improve the conditions of their community, provide knowledge and skills to the people.
  4. Political level: to influence political spaces and make decisions that influence positive changes in society.
