PROJECT TITLE: EMPOWER 25 CONGOLESE YOUNG GIRLS TO BECOME LEADERS

Catégorie : Project to Support
  1. BACKROUND AND CHALLENGE

It is difficult for girls and young women in Budodo to partake in decision-making at every level, from their families to the government. Decisions are often made about critical issues affecting girls' lives, such as early marriage, without the input of girls themselves. They rarely have the agency to make decisions in their lives on anything from when they marry and whether they go to school to the amount of resources invested in them. We will work with 25 young girls in eastern DRCongo to transform them into leaders.
