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.

Our mentoring camps would not be successful without the support and collaboration of parents. Not only do we understand the importance of the role of parents, we also want to tap into them as a resource. It is with this additional support that we can ascertain a measure of sustainability for our alumnae.

This year, beneficiary parents from 2 different groups attended a convening that sought to identify best practices in promoting positive cycles and support provision for the beneficiaries both at the camp retreats and in their respective homes.

Capture3Staff and supporters of The MATCH Fund first met the women and girls of the RCWG in Kenya last year. Here's what one staff member said about the experience: "From the minute I walked in, I knew this wasn't just any women's resource center. There was the goosebump factor right away. Their work is transformational for girls in Machakos." We look forward to sharing RCWG's updates with you throughout the year.
