Project Title
Help Build a Girls’ Resource Centre in Kitale Kenya

Project Summary
This project is offering 600 girls annually with vital skills to be assertive, courageous and eloquent in defending their rights while gaining vocational skills in tailoring, computer and internet

Project Beneficiaries
No facility exists to support girl child in developing her vital life skills such as high self esteem, eloquence, public speaking and confidence. Low self esteem among girls brought about by lack of access to education and exposure opportunity in Rural Kenya is limiting girls' chance to contribute to development. This project offers a safe, secure and equipped facility for education, life skills and vocational training skills. .

Project Activities
If we construct and equip a girls resource and empowerment centre, girls will access education, reproductive health, Internet, fitness, public speaking skills, and be confident in facing life challenges all under a one stop secure facility.

Long Term Impact
The project will construct a girls' resource & empowerment centre that will serve 600 girls annually offering Informal education, vocational skills, public speaking and public relations leading to self reliance & high esteem among them

Project Message
We are very excited with this project. We look forward to its completion as we shall be safer and secure working in the building. We look forward to more training facilities & services like internet. Even changing room will be available for the goirls. Beneficiary, Mss Pascilia Osere, a Girls Soccer Coach
