Day of the girl child.
“Our time is now—our rights, our future”. Women And Development Against Distress In Africa(WADADIA) aligns with and supports this great theme and joins local and international communities in marking #internationaldayofthegirlchild2022.
We recognize and acknowledge that to break the cycle and barriers in discrimination and violence against women and girls, they need to be made aware of their rights and empowered socially and economically. We continue to empower girls and amplify their voices through our programs that are founded and grounded on three pillars of reproductive health, Psychosocial support and economic empowerment services encouraging them to attain their highest potential while opening up opportunities for them.
Today, we celebrate progress made in this sphere while recognizing that much still needs to be done. And by working together to bring to life a future where all girls are empowered, respected and have access to equal opportunities
Yesterday, we joined other impressive local groups advancing girl empowerment. Being in the same space with other passionate advocates for the Girl Child Rights provides a chance to link and learn from each other.
As implementors in remote and vulnerable communities, we gather to inspire and encourage students at St. Elizabeth Lurekho in Mumias, Kakamega in order to ensure their safety, well-being and prioritize their mental and reproductive health rights.
At Women And Development Against Distress In Africa(WADADIA) we amplify and advocate for the rights of girls every chance we get.
We work with other like-minded organizations to ensure girls are safer, supported and are empowered.
