Participants Will Help Teach Others

Kiri Lizama

There are four components to the project that will see the five hundred participants then go out into their communities and engage other women and girls in gender and human rights issues. Project Coordinator Kiri Lizama explains the mechanism and how its desired outcome will be achieved.

“The first component has to deal with a bit of human rights training and advocacy where we will develop modules that will help our young girls, the five hundred persons that we will impact through this project. We have modules on human rights training for them. The second component has to do with counseling and psychosocial support. When you are engaging populations like this, you don’t know what you will encounter, what you will meet so we have prepped for that, where we will provide counseling and psychosocial support through our partnerships.  The third component has to do with employment skills training and through this component we really hope to empower girls and that they may have income generation from the skills that they will be learning through the project. And as mentioned, this is where the Y has its strength for that component. The fourth component is the training of trainers which is really going to be done in two phases where we hope to engage facilitators, persons who deal with our vulnerable populations. And the second phase has to do with engaging young girls and having a cohort of girls really together who will have leadership skills who will then engage their peers and teach their peers through component one of the human rights training session.”
