At Flying Kites, our efforts to combat child marriage, female genital mutilation, and to prevent the physical and sexual abuse of female students have culminated in our intensive, year-long initiative Girls United (Wasichana Pamoja). Through this program, our students learn about gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive rights, and healthy relationships at school, at home and in the community. Through the FK School Network, our girls have the opportunity to take their leadership skills into the wider community, where they advocate on the rights of girls around the world.
THROUGH THIS PROGRAM GIRLS RECEIVE:
Mentorship & Guidance Counseling
On-going My Body, Myself Training
Comprehensive Sex Education
Access to Sanitary Pads and Self-Care Workshops
Leadership Training and Opportunities to Serve the Community
