Teenage Girls Programmes

ACFS Teenage Girl’s Programmes focuses on building confidence as well as information sharing among young girls to assist them through the difficult years of adolescents. The teenage girls programme is structured to ensure that twice a week they receive structured interventions such as teen girl talks, career development as well as various skills development including debating, gum boot dance as well as drama classes, self-esteem, resilience for girls to reach their full potential and career future dreams. These programmes and these activities help the girls to ensure that the teens are kept busy, focused and kept away from the streets so that they have the best chance to finish school before falling pregnant, or becoming sexually active too early with limited sexual health information and protection, but for those who have made a mistake of falling pregnant they also get full support to recover and to be back to their normal lives again.

All the girls are also part of our nutrition programme and they receive daily hot meals as well as fruits to ensure that they access a balanced meal. The girls selected are coming from very poor and food insecure households.

The main aim of the programme is to reduce the risk of HIV infection, sexual and gender-based violence, provide reproductive health services, and to promote female empowerment and economic strengthening interventions that protect them from early marriages, engaging in risky behaviors, and dropping out of school. Also provides a comprehensive, multi-sectoral package of core interventions to address key factors that make girls and young women particularly vulnerable to HIV infections.  The programme also provides young women with comprehensive, evidence-based interventions and services to reduce HIV risk from sexual partners, strengthen families, and mobilize communities for change.
