GENDER EQUALITY

YIDP initiated a gender equality program to help adolescent and teenage girls and boys equally gain access to development activities in life skills and healthy lifestyle, culture, leadership, and peer education.

The impact of these activities is to build self-esteem and leadership skills for both girls and boys; increase gender consciousness; raise awareness and exchange information concerning the various issues affecting young females and males in the informal settlements in the counties we work in (e.g., sexual and reproductive health, teenage pregnancy, gender-based violence, rape, prostitution, etc.) – talking with girls and boys about making right choices in life and assertiveness – saying “No” to what you do not want and “Yes” to what you want.
YIDP creates opportunities for both girls and boys and perspectives through a mentoring and role modeling programme connecting younger and older professionals to one another. The impact on the community is to change the perspective of how women are seen as capable human beings who can bring change in the world and not as confined to roles of domestic chores and serving others.
The program also encourages and facilitates formal and informal education. Parents and leaders are engaged for necessary support, and the organization takes the role of facilitating this process. The overall aim here is to produce learned independent youth who will be at the forefront in contributing to the socio-economic development of their communities.
