Mugume Enid mentors young girls to grow as leaders in their community
Mugume Enid of WWK’s local partner Bliss Feme was awarded a scholarship to attend this year’s Sauty Ya Dada (SYD) program! Sauti ya Dada in translation means, “the girl’s voice”. It is a highly recognized program of WWK’s network partner, Creative Action Institute (CAI) that creates opportunities for adolescent girls to develop their leadership skills. Enid is being trained during 2022 to be a mentor and teacher who will support girls in her marginalized community to learn, discover and develop their sense of agency so to help them realize a better future. During the summer of 2022, Enid is accepted as a SYD Fellow and began to work with 30 girls at a local school to help create girl-led after school clubs, promote safety and well-being through education on sexual reproduction and health rights, and provide the girls with the opportunity to learn skills and knowledge vital to growing their leadership qualities.
