Mathare Girl Power Project
The Mathare Girl Power Project is a small scale project aimed at empowering young women living in the Mathare slums through vocational education, support and counselling.
We provide study and work opportunities for a small number of girls through our hairsalon.
But we want to reach out to many more by realising our dream of building a vocational school teaching hairdressing and tailoring and providing child care for young mothers.
We have started a mentorship programme whereby older girls act as mentors and coaches, providing knowledge and support about sexual health, puberty, advocacy and other issues.
Education is the means to empowerment and financial independence for girls born into poverty.
We are a registered charity registered in the Netherlands.
