Date grant awarded: 08/18/2017

Can village girls weather the myriad challenges of unwanted pregnancy, lack of menstrual hygiene products & school supplies and rise to be successful? Dickson’s Hold a Girl’s Hand Initiative is a school-based project which endeavors to holistically meet the needs of high school girls by providing guidance and counseling and giving menstrual hygiene products. This stage of the project will empower 100 young women through counseling & mentorship at Ndegwe Secondary School, Gem Sub-county in Siaya County, Kenya.
