Change for girls begins with her community.

We start by working with communities to create a long-term vision. Then, we facilitate discussions on human rights and gender roles. When communities learn about human rights and critically think about gender roles, parents are more likely to support their daughters' educations.

This is followed by seminars that give parents' tools to empower themselves and their daughters. At the same time, we provide facilitated discussions with girl and boy students. We also discuss puberty and provide reusable sanitary pads to adolescent girls.
