Girls in Charge
Once the women have begun to believe that they can be in charge of bringing change. They will form community groups. These groups will meet weekly and discussion issues they may face on a personal level up to a national level, and take charge of the decision making process. Girls in Charge are a judgment free zone with a platform of respect for each other. Girls can face stigmatization for many different things, having a place to share personal issue is a healing process. Then common threads will be identified, problems reviled, and Actions towards a solution.
The project seeks to encourage, mentor, empower, and provide adolescents the opportunities to develop into productive citizens. It will increase access to Sexual and Reproductive Health services and information, as well as quality life skills development and empowerment programmes for adolescents. The proposed interventions will further help adolescents to identify health issues associated with risky behavior, attitudes and practices, and make healthy behavioral choices, such as reporting abuse and the prevention of diseases like HIV/AIDs, etc. The project will be implemented in Peace Island, Congo Town, Montserrado County.
