Girls are often robbed of the right to make their own life decisions dure gender inequality and discrimination. They cannot choose what happens to their bodies, to when and to whom they marry.
In Kenya, teenage pregnancy robs girls of their potential to education opportunities. They assume adult responsibilities before age 18, they become mothers as minors and others suffer irreparable health complications for life.
Ripples International works with partners from the society, the government to enable girls’ access to quality sexual reproductive education and services, and eliminate harmful practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage.
