Help Dandelion Africa raise $44,684 to support girls in Kenya and amplify their voices and needs through Girl Centred Community Action Plans.

Dandelion Africa works through a community integrated model that focuses on the holistic well-being of girls and community. The model focuses on solving multi- dimensional community challenges with integrated solutions to create sustainable change within their communities.
Girls are considered currency during community crises, including climate change, tribal clashes, and poverty. Girls are further affected by poor health care, lack of education, the effects climate change, cultural practices like female genital mutilation, and lack of economic livelihoods. The greatest barriers to girls' education is not only the lack of opportunities but a system that hinders girls from achieving their full potential. This project will work through Dandelion Africa’s Girls Mentorship program—Girls for Leaders—to teach girls about using their voice so that they can champion the things they need to advance their education. This process will build their confidence, expose them to stakeholders and policy makers, improve their school performance, improve their sexual and reproductive health outcomes and enable them to influence change at the community level.
The Girls for Leaders program will create a pathway for girls in rural areas to learn how to advocate for themselves and other girls through interacting for the first time with community leaders. Through a toolkit, Dandelion Africa will support girls in developing Girl Centered Community Action Plans and map out the main thematic issues that affect girls in their local communities.

The program will directly serve 600 girls who will be trained as Student Peer Providers in 20 schools. The program is a weekly, in-school program for adolescent girls, delivered at schools as mentorship clubs. 1,800 girls will be mentored by the 600 Student Peer Providers. Dandelion Africa will use its curriculum that combines advocacy, gender-based violence awareness, prevention, and reporting mechanism and sexual and reproductive health education with self-awareness, leadership training and career counseling. This integrated mentorship program equips the girls with life skills as well as practical skills to thrive. It will encourage girls to become agents of change by increasing their self-awareness, self-esteem, and communication skills. In addition to gaining an understanding of their sexuality and health, they will come to understand how to advocate for services that affect them directly. This will reduce female genital mutilation, early pregnancies, early marriage, sexual gender based violence and improve climate change adaptation and economic empowerment in the long run.
Join us in supporting girls and making sure their voices are heard.
