Think Young Women, in partnership with The Girls’ Agenda are working with 20 out-of-school girls and young mothers on Gender-Based Violence, Teenage Pregnancy and FGM .
The training, funded by UNFPA The Gambia, is hosted in Janjanbureh, Central River Region and brings together participants from across the country. By the end of the activity, the participants will be equipped with better awareness and understanding of the selected topics, while enjoying a safe space to share their stories and provide support for one another, without fear of discrimination or other degrading behaviours.
The two organisations will support the selected participants to develop their personalities, build confidence, and encourage them to go back to school, where possible. With the right support, this often marginalised group can turn their fate around and contribute to their personal development and the country’s progress.
