Women & Girls Empowerment

AVFP Girls’ Clubs and Teens’ Clubs bring together nearly 300 girls to learn about health, reproductive health and family planning and nutrition. They’re also introduced to urban farming, the use of clean cook stoves, and various savings and livelihood opportunities. Most importantly, perhaps, the clubs give the girls a safe place to come together, have fun, share secrets, complain about aggressive boyfriends, get career counseling and get to know accomplished women who provide strong role models. The Clubs help empower girls to make the most of their lives and are supported through a grant from WomenStrong International.
