The Resource Center for Women and Girls is keen on expanding our networks and increasing our impact numbers by imparting information significant to their respective gender. The idea is to gauge the impact social norms affect students’ personal development. This year, we plan to do this by visiting various schools where our alumni and camp participants go to school. This ensures that we have a larger pool of girls we are working with and we have the support of school authorities.

At the Resource Center for Women and Girls (RCWG) we aim to reach out to girls living in rural areas throughout the country.

Since the onset of our programme in 2007, we have reached over 2500 girls directly and indirectly.  The girls we target would otherwise not have access to the quality, diverse and feminist skills and knowledge that our programme offers. We are keen on reaching more girls and extending the “scope” we have to date.

During the last 10 years, we have made systematic efforts to reach adolescent girls in communities further afield from Nairobi and the environs. As entry points, we have liaised with schools and community leaders to introduce both us and our programme to various communities, including churches, chamas and of course our Alumni network. To this effect, we officially launched an outpost project in Samburu - Wamba. The idea is to create a safe space for alumni, beneficiaries and girls in this community to create a sisterhood and solidarity, to share, strategize and support each other.

This year, we were able to participate in CSW 63! Our work in line with the CSW agenda, addresses among others, SDGs3 Good Health and Well-being through our sexual and reproductive health and rights program, SDG4 Quality Education through our work with schools, ensuring a reduced number of school drop outs, through our menstrual management and proper infrastructure and sanitation programme, that girls go to school, stay and finish school, SDG5 Gender Inequality through our mentoring programmes where girls are taught about their human rights and the emphasis that women’s rights are human rights and SDG17 Partnerships for the goals respectively through collaborating with like-minded organisations.

Through partnerships and collaborations with other organisations, our work also addresses SDG8 promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
