Youth Work

Girls and Young Women Session (up to 18 years of age) – Monday nights

The Project creates a special space for local teenage girls, a time when they can have the run of the project’s buildings and outdoor play areas, facilities and activities: without boys and male staff around. This is because some families from more traditional local communities discourage them from socialising with boys, so if we didn’t make this special time for them, they might be allowed to come at all. Sometimes they have more domestic responsibilities than their brothers and this gives them a break from this. Often they just have a lot more fun without the boys around.
