Amani Initiative is currently implementing its 5 year strategic plan ( 2015-2020) strategic plan that aims at creating a more equal, healthy and productive community free of teenage pregnancy and child marriage.
In the year 2015, considerable steps have been taken in achieving this vision. Our education department concentrated on making the school environment a friendly environment whereby every child feels involved in the running of the school environment. We started the implementation of our Keep Me In School project where we have so far worked with 10 schools. Two vulnerable girls directly affected by teenage pregnancy have also benefited from the school fees program. 220 student leaders from from primary schools in Arua & Maracha districts have benefited from our student leaders development program.
Through empowering adolescents to make informed decisions about their sexuality, we were able to organize school outreaches and workshops were by more than 800 adolescents directly took part in sessions related to sexual & reproductive health decisions, managing and understanding menstruation, and HIV/AIDs.
At the Global and National level, we have continued to work with Girls Not Brides to strengthen our efforts against child marriage. The Girls Not Brides Global members meeting in Casablanca, Morocco were an opportunity for the members to learn from each other, the Girls Not Brides National alliance is also working with Ministry of Gender to implement the National Strategy to end child marriage and teenage pregnancy. We have also had more than 2,000 in school youth to benefit from the Aflateen Social & Financial Education Program in schools in Arua and Maracha District.
Through the support from our partners and members we were able to raise 46,363,950 that was used to implement our various programs as well as administration.
