  • Over 240 young people aged 10-24 years were mobilized in Champions of Change clubs and trained using Champions of Change (CoC) modules so as to equip them with SRHR knowledge that help them gain confidence in themselves and be able to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health.
  • The Champions of Change clubs were supported with VSLA tool kits for their saving activities. 60 pairs of sports uniforms and stocking were also given.
    In one of the groups CLASS has supported in the creation of ram to ensure accessibility and renovated pit latrine. This has made the group members happy and retained in the sessions. Young people are now able to save for future eventualities.
  • Intergenerational dialogue meetings brought together more than 250 young people and the parents/key stakeholders to discuss issues affecting young people in relation to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights. The meeting openly and expansively discussed socioeconomic challenges hindering young people from accessing SRH knowledge and services that is fundamental to informing the choices they make in life choices for example,
    lack of finances to facilitate movement to and fro health facilities given the long distance and the meeting resolved that young people and their parents start to engage in small scale fast growing horticultural activities to boost their household income (that will help in meeting expenses related to SRHR service access) and meet their nutritional needs.

Changes in gender stereotypes:

Previous stereotypical perceptions about job-skills are being de-bunk: 3 girls from Alebtong innovation hub in the names of Ejang Judith, Aol Susan, Akello Mildren graduated in metal fabrication and Auma Lucky for motorcycle repair, 2 boys in the names of Ogwara Innocent and Aluko Ceasor graduated in hair dressing and are now employed, and all are performing very well.

They are the first girls in Alebtong district who did welding, and the two boys are the first of its kind in Alebtong doing hairdressing.

These girls are now respected in the community because they earn a living out of their skills compared to those days where their social status had been very poor.
Girls and boys work together without underrating each other based onĀ theirĀ gender.
