The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP) in collaboration with partners, has concluded a two-day National Young Women and Girls Conference with over 150 participants drawn from the 15 sub-political divisions in attendance.
The two-day conference was designed by MGCSP with focus on reviewing progress made against recommendations and key actions that came out of the 2018 Young Women and Girls Conference, creating an environment for young women and girls to network with different stakeholders and share their experiences as well as to increase young women and girls’ knowledge to make better decisions, take on leadership roles and avoid risky behavior.
