Project #91 | Education & Skills for Girls in Kenya
Our partnership with Heshima Kenya
Young and unaccompanied refugee girls are among the most vulnerable yet invisible populations in the world, often suffering from the loss of their families as well as traumatic cases of kidnapping, rape, trafficking, and torture. This project directly empowers and advocates for 30 refugee girls and young women in Nairobi through the Girls’ Empowerment Project (GEP), an education program that not only teaches basic literacy, but also valuable life skills, vocational training, and financial literacy. They are invited to join a seven-month tailoring course and eventually the Maisha Collective, an entrepreneurship-training program where participants learn how to operate a small business. Through this holistic program, these girls and young women have the opportunity to become change-makers in their communities, reversing the effects of war and poverty.
