Our work in May:By Sandra Muzama
June 7, 2021
The month of May has been busy as usual for us as an organization. We acknowledge the wide gaps that still exist and need our attention in the communities we work in but our mandate stands and the vision is not wavered. We foresee a positive transformation of our society through the work the we are doing. We have successfully supported 21 girls to stay in school and not succumb to early marriage by paying up their school fees,buying stationery and uniforms. As an organization we also got to identify 5 adolescents and young people who we have supported with seed capital to start businesses and had the privilege to do sight visits and saw vibrant business ventures. The month of May also marked the Menstrual health day and as an organization to bridge period poverty we had a sanitary wear drive where women and girls would walk in any of our offices and get a free dignity pack on the day. Our community dialogues still continue physically and we also have online platforms where we deliberate on SRHR issues as girls in the Nhanga and boys in the Dare. ROOTS is appreciative of the overwhelming support from it’s partners, stakeholders and the cooperation of our primary actors.We are geared up for the month of June especially as it is when child marriages and teenage pregnancies escalate.
