Project Details

L’AMIE is testing an innovative solution which aims to foster more equitable access for young girls who have been victims of gender-based violence to non-traditional professional training, by providing a safe and empowering environment. To achieve this, they receive financial support for the training, as well as for their basic needs (child support, health care). They are accompanied by women mentors who work in the same areas and receive psychosocial support for the prevention of GBV, including training on sexual and reproductive health. After their training, the girls are set up in cooperatives. Activities are also organized with targeted groups (employers, male counterparts) to raise awareness in the community about the participation of girls in non-traditional training and jobs.
