supporting conflict affected girls in school

Girls  and children continue to be the most vulnerable group of people in times of disasters and conflict .During conflict girls get so vulnerable to sexual violence and lack basic needs which are more than those of their male counter parts  since they loose care takers and parents, through arrests ,death , migrations among other effects of conflict.This makes children and girls too susceptible to drop out of school, early marriages ,early pregnancies among other challenges .RIC-NET with support from the Global Fund for Children supports conflict affected girls in schools with psycho social support and mentoring , reproductive health knowledge , sanitary material , scholastic material to girls who have been affected by conflict .
RIC-NET staff hands over some of the items to some of the conflict affected girls with their matron
RIC-NET supported girls at Kithoma peas who were affected by the recent tribal conflicts in the Rwenzori region .The girls were supported with sanitary material ,books , pens,soap among other items .
