This project funded by Global Fund for Women seeks to address the challenges of sexual violence (early pregnancies, early marriage, and forced marriage) through mentorship. It is under our Girl Education Support and Mentorship pillar and focuses on young girls both in school and out of school. Through mentorship, their chances of success in education are enhanced since mentors will offer support on personal growth and career development. Through one-on-one discussions, the girls will be guided and encouraged to set their personal and career goals. The relationship and bond established with mentors will contribute to their personal and professional growth. In the project, RWPL will adopt group mentoring to encourage peer mentorship. Mentees will also be allowed to request for one-on-one discussions to satisfy their different and varying needs. RWPL will work closely with the Alumni of our Girl Education Support and Mentorship program.
RWPL will also work towards enhancing young women’s participation in leadership positions both at the school’s level and the community level. Through mentoring on leadership skills, the young women will be empowered and equipped to assume and challenge for any leadership position that comes their way. Wezesha DADA will address the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG); SDG 4 Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, SDG 5 Gender Equality and SGD 10 Reduce Inequality. RWPL through the mentorship program will contribute towards universal SDGs and the Kenya Vision 2030 which are in line with the universal SDGs.
It seeks a well-established network of young women leaders- mentors who promote mentorship of young girls in Nandi and Uasin Gishu. In order to create a pool of young successful girls who complete school and seek opportunities in the community.
