Am by the name of Kahyana Joseph the Programs Director of Agape of Hope Female Youth Development Association. Am a social worker and with experience of over 25 years working in the prevention of domestic violence and Human Rights promotion and women and girls. At first i was working with Kamuruli united rural women Association as a director for 5 years and then after that i joined Good Hope foundation for rural development as a executive director and where i worked for 13 years. And from there i joined Agape of Hope where am now as a programs director. In all those organizations our main focus was on the promotion of Human rights and sexual abuse among women and and girls. For girls who could be sexually abused and be impregnated at early age could be trained in vocational skills to enable her sustain her self and her child, since most of them could not with the boys who impregnated them. Even some of those boys could be young boys who cant manage to take care of them and the children. We also went further to find out why early pregnancies among adolescent girls. And one of the causes was lack of menstrual hygiene materials such as sanitary pads and we then started training them on how to make reusable sanitary pads to the adolescent girls in primary schools in order to reduce the problem of early pregnancies among adolescent girls in our rural communities. We have trained over 2440 adolescent girls in primary schools and over 600 parents in communities where those children come from.
