Overordnede mål :

EGD’s overarching goal is to contribute to the improvement of teen girl rights so as to impact practices against girls such as sexual harassment, forced dropping out of school, and forced early marriage.

Umiddelbare mål :

1. Empower teen girls and enhance their leadership skills to become decision-makers, active civic participants and advocates for their futures; and 2. Mobilize, lobby, and advocate for teen girl rights with community stakeholders against repressive customs and ideologies that prohibit girls’ educational development/future success.

Målgrupper :

EGD target groups are comprised of: - 20 Women Empowerment Facilitators who will hold parent meetings, register 10 squads of girls, lead the 28 empowerment workshops, support GLCs and mentor girls to hold Community Dialogues at 10 project sites - 200 teen girl participants (20 per location) from 10 marginalized locations who will participate in the PSB curriculum, GLCs and lead Community Dialogues - 150 parents (15 per location), estimated 50% mothers and 50% fathers, who will participate in parent meetings + Community Dialogues - 200 other youth (under 34 years old, 20 per location) estimated 60% female, 40% male who will participate in Community Dialogues - 100 community leaders (10 per location) who will participate in Community Dialogues, 50% women and 50% men Additionally, PS estimates that each PS girl on average influences and raises awareness of a minimum of five other individuals, using information learned during PSB implementation.

Resume:

Vores projekts overordnede mål er at bidrage til forbedring af teenagepigers rettigheder og muligheder for at påvirke diskriminerende praksis mod piger og unge kvinder, såsom seksuel chikane, skolefrafald og tvunget og tidligt ægteskab. Vi vil arbejde mod dette via to mål: 1. Styrke teenagepiger ved at forbedre deres lederegenskaber, så de kan blive beslutningstagere, aktive politiske deltagere og fortalere for deres fremtid. 2. I samarbejde med en bred platform af interessenter vil vi mobilisere, lobby og advokere for teenagepigers rettigheder og kæmpe mod undertrykkende skikke og ideologier, der forhindrer pigers uddannelsesmuligheder og fremtidig succes.
