Building Resilience for Girls

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has left devastating effects on human life globally. As a response to stop its spread, countries introduced lockdowns, economies were shut down which led to increased uncertainty, anxiety and depression. Children in particular have seen the worst of its impacts, closure of schools not only affected learning but also subjected children to increased violence and abuse since it’s been documented that education is a protective factor against violence for children.

We carried out COVID 19 impact survey and realized that our girls lost hope, and had a lot of uncertainty about the future. Parents needed extra support on how to engage their adolescent girls to keep safe from early pregnancy and other related vices.

It was from this background that Programs department came up with strategic approaches to mitigate these risks hence Building resilience for Girls. We held four sessions to cover all our four centers that is Kiwoko, Mazzi, Luwero and Kampala.

  • 99 girls were reached, refreshed and sense of hope was created
  • Girls freely shared about who they think a girl is
  • They defined who a good friend is
  • They freely shared their challenges
  • They exchanged ideas on how to avoid bad company and stay focused no matter what
  • We also distributed pads and masks to the girls
