Her Turn workshops graduates

Project 023 / 2019 – 2021

Her turn-01

Hamro Palo organises trainings called “Her Turn” for girls that are between 12 and 16 years old. The 4-week long trainings are held in schools by women from the community, that have been trained beforehand and talk about the following subjects:

  • Week 1 – Health: nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, etc.
  • Week 2 – Safety, early marriage, domestique violence, bullying, traffic, immigration, etc.
  • Week 3 – Confidence building: leadership
  • Week 4 – Community project: Each beneficiary receives a small allocation. They have to utilise their money in a group and come up with something (regarding as for example health, hygiene, etc.) for their community.

 

The project will help to deliver trainings to a total of 800 young girls in 2019 and 2020.

The same type of trainings will be held to 500 boys of the ages 12 - 16, as it has been proven that they play an important role for the security in their communities.

 

For the sensibilisation of rights, the project allows:

  • 10 young scholars in journalism produce every year articles, videos and other contents regarding the issues that girls have to face
  • 5 young “champions” of the cause organize 3 “success stories”, leadership initiative or products linked to media, which will shed light on the problems girls have to deal with in their communities
  • A report about the analysed impact of the training “Her Turn” of previous years will be written
  • 10 radio emissions will be produced together with social mobilizers and local community radio channels
  • One day of « International Girls Day Celebration » will be organized
