We all agree that education is a basic right to all children, however the Kenyan patriarchal culture and lack of safe spaces for girls affect their ability to access school and remain in school.

The Safe Schools For Girls Project was established to address issues of violence against girls and ensure that girls can have safe spaces in schools in order to pursue and excel in their education. In this issue, we will look at how girls’ forums have impacted lives of girls, empowering them to speak out against Violence as well as stand up for their right to education and leadership. We will also share some of the key lessons learnt from this 21 month project on ensuring girls have safe spaces in schools.
