STUDENT PROJECT: Adolescent Girls 2015-16

The student groups in the second year were to develop a WASH concept that would focus specifically on tackling some of the issues adolescent girls face in school and in their communities.

The original objectives of the project were:


Based on the data collected from the field, the team’s outcome was a List of Recommendations for the different actors in the community (national, district, sub-district, school, civil society, girl pupil, private sector) how to involve the special needs of adolescent girls in planning and development. The team also listed key issues to be addressed to have a positive impact:  1) dysfunctional communities, 2) lack of access to pads, and 3) inefficient sex education strategies in school.
