We’re working to mobilise and educate parents on the rights of children especially their right to education to prevent child marriage. We are working alongside local government to create protection systems and train community groups how to stop child abuse and abductions. 

We have already achieved great things in the Ngogwe community by helping children receive an education and creating child clubs to mobilize youth in the community.
 

We’re working with the people of Ngogwe to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Ngogwe for almost 10 years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Ngogwe community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2023 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
