Some middle school to high school girls ran into me while in village and asked if I could help them understand their menstrual cycles and how to track it.

Hello Community, LIFE
WANPOT has created a crowds funding for our project to make a big impact at the community and national level. We have pooled our resources and still have some ways to go. LIFE is an educational program that will inform girls and teachers in various life skill matters such as gender violence, and sexual reproduction health. However we have a peace building curriculum and after school activities that include clubs and the arts. All activities are for social and cultural building. The link for further information is: http://gogetfunding.com/project/life-3
Launching a new project for the summer months. The theme is Youth Advocacy and Child Rights.
This is radio campaign in order to promote the rights of the children. This program consists of creating stories in order to promote children’s rights, training radio hosts, and finally how to speak about child rights and abuses of those rights in the presence of children in a sensitive manner. The stories will be broadcasting through different radio stations. Topics will include school attendance (especially for girls), right to freedom of expression, against female genital mutilation. I hope to achieve awareness to the greater population of the plight of children to exercise their rights.
Wow I cam across this post of one of my community projects recently (http://westafricainsight.org/articles/PDF/270). It is ongoing and participation even in the form of advice and volunteering/ e-volunteering is valued. Contact me if interested (firstname.lastname@example.org)
