Project Gender Theme

The Kekeli Girls Project is ready to start Klologo. The committee is already in place and the project is due to start in spring 2021: The Kekeli Girls Project is taking shape. Two school mothers, two schoolgirls, a secondary school teacher, a retired school counsellor and a primary school teacher are on the committee that was founded on 9 November in Klologo. With the "Project for the Protection and Promotion of Girls", we want to ensure that so many teenage girls no longer leave school. Without education, they cannot escape the poverty into which they were born. The figures recently reported to us by the censor of the three schools in Klologo are frightening: at the high school, the percentage of girls is only 15 percent, and of these, 21 percent dropped out last school year, due to early pregnancy and because they are not supported at home. We want to change that. The girls, women and men of the committee help us to do this by educating the girls - an absolutely taboo subject in many local families! - and strengthen their self-esteem, teach them to stand up for themselves and to say no. They also give them the necessary support. And also give them the necessary support to finish school. The boys should also be educated; we will also have to talk about contraception. If we succeed in this, if we keep more girls in school, we will significantly increase their chances of finding a job and contribute not only to improving education in the village, but also to improving the economic situation and to more gender equality. All important UN goals, which we are realising a little further with this.
For girls We are planning a new project in close cooperation with the French Association Kekeli: We want to protect young girls from unwanted, early pregnancies: They drop out of school, do not learn a profession and are in danger of slipping into the precariat without future prospects. It is our contribution to the empowerment of women. To this end, we are planning to set up a local committee that will do the educational work, also towards the parents, and also offer contraceptives to teenagers of both sexes. The aim is to get more girls to finish school - the school drop-out rate due to pregnancy is enormously high in rural areas in Togo. The number of "private" abortions, which often endanger the health of young women, will also decrease. 25.09.2020
