Solutions For Women Kenya
SWO believes that everyone has a right to basic education. In many parts of the world however, children particularly girls are denied access to this right. SWO addresses reasons why girls are out of school and involve the communities in identifying and overcoming these barriers to learning. This is done in collaboration with individuals, government, partner organizations.
This initiative is undertaken to empower girls in school to boost their self-esteem and build confidence so that success is attained. SWO provides meaningful programs on life skills, career talks, skills on passage from childhood to adulthood among other in order to empower girls to move forward with their lives
