Manasprings Leadership Chapter in Migori

Published on August 20th, 2017 in Events

The Manasprings Leadership Chapter in Migori was a huge success, with women enjoying interacting, learning and sharing with each other. New friendships and connections were made, issues facing the community were discussed, and women leaders encouraged to continue in their service. There was time to talk about the major concerns, in particular, the issues of girl marriages, girl pregnancies, sexual violence of girls, FGM (female genital mutilation), girls dropping out of school, and the need for sanitary pack distribution in schools. As one of the teachers said, “We must have girl empowerment in this community – change must come.” Thanks to the Migori women community leaders for supporting this Chapter. Let’s believe we can meet again soon.
