We are happy to announce that our Fistula and Empowerment Program (FEP) is back in session. The program was very successful in its pilot stage (April to June 2014). Participants meet on a weekly basis to educate themselves and build awareness about obstetric fistula (a devastating childbirth injury) as well as to self-empower by addressing issues of sexual health, race, and political issues affecting women and girls.
FEP is off to a fresh start and we have an exciting line-up of guest speakers in addition to a host of new activities specifically designed to increase participant engagement, and community involvement in our programs around obstetric fistula and women’s health. Our new facilitators, Kalkidan and Ntombi are committed to mentoring participants while making learning and self-empowerment fun.
Stay tuned because there’s lots to come!
