Lunch Seminar: Empowering Girls for Equality
Plan International Belgium, Ravensteingalerij 3, 1000 Brussel (Tibila Room)
Van 12u. tot 14u.
LUNCH SEMINAR WITH SHARON CHIKANYA, PLAN INTERNATIONAL RWANDA
How do we tackle an issue that is often still taboo? Which role can local authorities and religious leaders take up? How do we make sure that boys and men are involved as well?
In this lunch seminar, Sharon Chikanya from Plan International Rwanda will present Empowering Girls for Equality. This project aims to empower adolescent girls through informal training. In safe spaces girls learn about their sexual and reproductive health and rights, receive psychological care, talk to older mentors, and are redirected to appropriate services when needed. Through informal methods they learn about entrepreneurship and youth saving groups as well. Boys get together in boys clubs, where they can talk with male mentors about healthy and appropriate relationships.
The seminar will include a presentation of the project and ample time for discussion on programming for refugee youth, saving groups, and adolescent SRHR. Sandwiches will be provided.
