EMPOWER

The objectives of the project are:
– enhancing the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and capacities of adolescent girls and boys. The goal is to empower them to make informed choices and decisions about their rights, relationships, sexual and reproductive health, and financial literacy through the implementation of the Rupantaran social and financial skills package.
– engaging adolescent boys, men, mothers, fathers, extended families, traditional and religious leaders, community groups, and other influencers. The aim is to increase their knowledge and skills in promoting gender-equitable attitudes and advocating for adolescent girls’ rights. This collective effort contributes to changing broader social norms within the community.
