Girls United delivered at Lesia High School

Another group of girls and young women graduated through the Girls United project this week as Kick4Life completed delivery of the curriculum at Lesia High School.

58 students participated in programme, composed of 14 sessions covering topics including gender rights, sexual & reproductive health education and safely tackling violence against women and girls. There was also a mixed gender tournament where the same number of boys were engaged in sessions designed to challenge gender discrimination and create mutual respect.

The school principal highlighted that Lesia High School and Kick4Life have been in a partnership for the past 11 years and they are looking forward to more years of collaboration. He encouraged the girls to use the skills they learned from the programme going forward in their lives and in pursuit of their goals.

Thato 'Cheez' Sentje, Girls United Assistant, congratulated the participants on their commitment to the course and encourage them to share what they learned with their peers. Addressing the boys, she asked them to support and respect all girls and women and told the girls to reciprocate the respect and support to boys as well.
