Brick Machines

We have the two brick machines on site now at Njongon,all the way from the southern tip of India. The villagers have spent weeks gathering oyster shells which they fired in open fires to reduce them to lime. They have bagged 150 bags of lime which will be used with the earth and 15% cement to make the bricks in the manual hydraulic presses. They are then dried in the sun and will be used to repair their own homes first and then sold to surrounding villages. The bricks will be made here for future water tanks.Training has started on site from a local company who have been using the same brick machines for a year already.

report on Girls Agenda Summer Camp

The Girls’ Agenda in partnership with For My Sister implemented a summer camp on female genital mutilation
(FGM) and other sexual and reproductive health issues for girls and young women. The activity was
implemented in two phases from the 20th to 30th August, 2015. The aim is to empower girls and young women
with appropriate life skills and knowledge required to be aware of their fundamental human rights and how to
demand for the respect and protection of such rights. A total number of 53 girls and young women were
trained on various modules ranging from life and leadership skills, female genital mutilation, child marriage,
sexual violence, the importance and right to girl’s education, issues of teenage pregnancy and illegal abortion,
comprehensive sexuality education, and entrepreneurship.
