Championing healthy relationships

and sexual wellbeing

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

A HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, empowering vulnerable girls and young women to take their health and futures #InTheirHands.

Together - in just 7 days - we raised £24,286 to help empower over 8,000 girls and young women in Zimbabwe and Nigeria in 2022, building their self-esteem, enabling them to take control of their sexual and reproductive health, protecting them from the dangers of sex work, and supporting them to achieve their chosen career and life goals.

PEER EDUCATION, ZIMBABWE

Adolescent sex workers will be trained as peer educators to reach thousands of at-risk girls and young women with sexual health advice. The project will also help the peer educators create pathways out of sex work through vocational and business skills training, or will support them in returning to education.

TEEN MUMS PROJECT, ZIMBABWE

At-risk teen mums will be supported in reaching their career goals and parenting well. This targeted work is vital as teen mums’ school dropout rates are high and many who are vulnerable turn to sex work. Our empowerment program will provide vocational training and the opportunity to return to school

ESTEEM CLUBS, NIGERIA

Acutely vulnerable adolescent girls will be inspired to reach their goals through quality relationships and sex education delivered through Esteem Clubs in IDP camps, children’s homes, rehabilitation centres, churches and schools. These sessions champion girls and promote gender equality.

CHILDREN’S CLUBS, NIGERIA

Girls’ self-esteem will be built up from a young age through Kids’ Clubs. These safe, gender equal spaces will provide girls, aged 5-12, with vibrant learning experiences that encourage them in their talents. They will participate in life skills education, study support and recreation.

Here is a little video thank you from some of the girls who will be supported.
