Fortress of Hope Africa (FOHA) is a grassroots adolescent girls organization founded in 2006 on the need and desire to bridge the gap of adolescent girls’ isolation in development .Our rural and urban poor girls we target are often left out or not able to access life changing opportunities that can improve their health more so SRHR, increase their access to quality education and enable them to fully exercise their rights.
Our interventions are by girls for the girls reaching to the most at risk girls and young women in undeserved communities in Kenya. Our experience have taught us that there is no one-size fit all solution to achieving women and girls ‘ empowerment , gender equality and women rights. Our interventions have evolved over time, girls lived experiences and realities shape and continue to shape how we formulate our interventions. We believe girls are leaders of today and Now, and community engagement and leveraging built relationships is critical in adolescent programing and building solidarity. We listen more, ask more and try to connect with realities of girls, a culture that has enabled us learn/connect with the complexity of girls’ needs, helping us to create a girl focused solutions.
