Girls’ and Boys’ Clubs

WGEP provides after school “molding clubs” for boys and girls. These meetings are an opportunity for boys and girls to learn about and discuss topics such as children’s right to education, development, parental care, and protection against harmful practices and abuse.

These clubs give an opportunity for girls and boys to explore an alternative perspective regarding the role that girls (and the women they will become) can play in shaping the future of their communities.

These clubs also encourage and involve boys and men in supporting women’s empowerment, which is a key ingredient to achieving this goal.

Additionally, students participate in income-generating projects such as chicken rearing, egg selling, and bean farming.

350 students across 10 different schools have participated in these clubs.
