Project MyGirl and MyBoy

When girls in Malawi reach puberty they often drop out of school. MyGirl is a programme aimed to help girls stay in school and to educate them in issues of adolescent development, health, sex education, cultural myths and beliefs. It costs just £10 per girl to train and provide a sanitary pack with 5 washable sanitary towels, pants and soap which will help girls stay in school.This August a team from Hope4Malawi will be delivering the programme to 300 girls and boys in one secondary and one primary school, neither of which have had the programme before.

The programme addresses some of the unhelpful cultural customs in Malawi and aims to empower girls to have the courage to make a difference in their communities.
Project MyBoy also addresses some of the cultural values underlying how boys treat girls in the rural areas of Malawi and helps them to develop respect for the girls.
