Financial empowerment

Pathways, Kenya

Using a holistic football programme, girls at risk will receive leadership training; access education and be supported into financial dependence. Community sensitisation in safeguarding and gender rights will help transform the social landscape to better support and protect the target population from harmful practices. Work with boys and men is crucial in challenging negative beliefs and attitudes towards females and to promote more equitable relationships in communities.
