Under a sub-grant agreement made by Women for Women International under “TWICECEKA” Activity (Let Us Speak UP), a program activity funded by USAID to strengthen Rwandan civil society’s ability to engage the government in the fight against gender-based violence (GBV), KEEPCARE RWANDA in consortium with Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC) and Faith Victory Association (FVA) is implementing a GBV prevention intervention “Effective implementation of National gender policy and sexual and reproductive health policy to reduce teenage pregnancies in schools and surrounding communities in Huye and Kicukiro Districts.”
The objectives of the intervention are to speak out against GBV issues confronting young girls by doing the following:
Explore attitudes, perceptions and needs of teenagers and community members about teenage pregnancies
Identify barriers encountered by young girls in accessing knowledge, skills and services on sexual reproductive health
Implement gaps in government efforts to eradicate teenage pregnancies
Advocate for effective implementation of the National gender policy and other government policies such as the National Reproductive Health Policy towards eradication of teenage pregnancies.
