Why helps SCOEN to amplify girls voices
At Share Child Opportunity Eastern and Northern Uganda (SCOEN), we areapproaching the problem of child marriage utilizing a multi-dimensional approach – addressing education, gender based-violence, social norms, and providing income generation opportunities.
Today young women like Isiku are changing the community!
My name is Isiku and I am 23 years old. I live in Arapai and I am a change at SCOEN. I became an activist because as someone who experienced challenges of teen pregnancy, I wanted to help put an end to early child marriage and teen pregnancies. At SCOEN I am a Champion of Change facilitator on ending child marriages, promoting gender equality and children’s rights.
For the movement that aims to end early, child and forced marriage, I wish to see all those children who were involved to make it back to school and succeed in life. I would like to continue sensitizing communities on the importance of education and the danger of getting pregnant at an early age. One day, I would like to become a Community Developer of SCOEN because I have seen so many activities that needs more attention in our communities.
While we have made some great strides, SCOEN still has a lot to accomplish.
