The problems of the girl child and Women in Africa and Cameroon abound. The girl child is still considered inferior to the boy in many communities, still being judged not by her capabilities but by her gender, her education in some families is sacrificed for that of the boy, she still remains vulnerable to early marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual assault, exposed to social vices etc.
Welisane Foundation seeks to address issues that effect and block the girl child and women from advancing in the society and to reach her utmost capacity and ability through:
- Formal & Informal Education
- Capacity Building Workshops
- Advocacy for Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights
- Socio-economic Empowerment
We believe if the girl child is empowered and given maximum education, she will not fall prey to many Socio-Economic vices.
It is said if you train a girl child, you train a nation. The girl child needs to be empowered in our communities to become women who will build better and stronger communities of tomorrow.
