October 2018 activities

Publié le

The activities for the month of October were briefly suspended for 10 days due to the uncertain socio political atmosphere around the election period in our region.  Despite that we successfully reached out to about 280 women and girls with whom we:

  • Completed our computer training
  • Discussed female leadership, goals setting and peer group pressure
  • Discussed menstruation
  • Trained on irrigation techniques for sustainable gardening during the dry season

 

Computer training

We successfully completed the computer training with our last batch of trainees.

Some trainees are happy to say they can produce basic leaflets and cards for their businesses.

 

Activities with rural women and girls

We rounded up our series of discussions on goal setting, peer pressure and female leadership.

We are gradually entering into the dry season; we worked on irrigation to ensure a successful gardening in one group community garden.

We started some preliminary discussions on our project that will enable rural women and girls to basic information on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Menstrual Hygiene Management and access to washable sanitary pads during their period. We shared more information about what menstruation is, the ages and how it happens

We appreciate all our volunteers and supporters; they continue to support us despite the crisis and difficult conditions we work in our region. The women and girls we work with are very active and count on us. Reach us at africanyouthalliancegroup@gmail.com if you are interested in partnering with us.
