At Fields of Life we are deeply concerned about the lack of available clean water in East Africa. Especially among vulnerable and marginalised groups, such as women and children. We can’t believe that 844 million people lack access to safe water and 2.3 billion lack access to a safe toilet (water.org).
I AM GIRL is a health education initiative which seeks to improve the attendance of adolescent girls in school. Our goal is to educate boys, girls, teachers, parents and community members on issues such as gender equality, menstrual hygiene management, gender based violence and child protection.
Africa has the youngest population in the world, so we are committed to seeking ways to create opportunities for young people. We believe the stimulation of local enterprise, economy and the development of skills based, vocational education is fundamental for East Africa.
