We are excited to announce our new campaign, Strong Girls Make Strong Women. This campaign is focused on providing opportunities for young women at our partner schools, ASoH is doing this by holding a club for learners to connect with each other and discuss issues that are absent from school curriculum but very much important to build confidence and strengthen career planning among young women.
We are piloting the club at our partner school, Ntsoelemolodi Primary School. The school’s principal, Thibela, is a highly dedicated woman looking to work further with the girls at their partner schools to inspire and motivate. Thibela will be serving as the club’s facilitator, leading the club and mentoring the girls. The club will be held once a week after school and the club will be starting up in September. We hope to expand this program to all of our partner schools after a year of piloting at Ntsoelemolodi Primary School.
We are also looking to provide the resources girls and young women need to help keep these learners in school. We want to start by providing girls at Ntsoelemolodi and our other partner schools with period kits which include cloth liners and pads. These period kits are produced by a company, Days For Girls, which supports local women through job creation. With this, we are looking for support in funding these pads for our partner schools.
