Thank You UNFPA- Polycom Girls appreciate your visit
UNFPA Country Director Ademola Olajide visited the mentorship program being undertaken by Polycom Development Project. The projects aim is to offer life skills and sexual reproductive health rights to adolescent girls within Kibera. The Director had a one on one session with the girls and asked them what life skills they would want UNFPA to build on. As part of their response, the girls mentioned beauty, fashion, modelling among other interested skills. The UNFPA Director reiterated that the skills are beneficial for their own personal growth and that in the coming few months a great event will be organized by Polycom Development in partnership with UNFPA to ensure that the girls will take charge of the ICPD anniversary and follow it through to make it a success. To this the girls were thrilled. We look forward to more visits from the UNFPA Kenya country director’s visit to the Organization. Further to his visit, Dr Olajide gifted 10 pregnant adolescent girls with a dignity kit from UNFPA Kenya. The pregnant girls were promised a visit to a golf club as part of building their self-worth. A follow up visit was done by the UNFPA team to the offices to further find the training gaps that the mentors require.
