Strengthening

About

Projet Jeune Leader is a youth-founded, youth-led, and youth-focused organization based in Fianarantsoa, Madagascar. Their core programming is a comprehensive, school-based, sexual health and leadership education program which currently operates in 12 public middle schools. In 2016, they created a complementary branch to specifically address the needs of adolescent girls.

As part of this new branch, this Strengthening Grant will help make primary schools across Madagascar a more supportive environment for young girls as they enter puberty.  They will integrate menstrual hygiene education into primary school curricula by training teachers across the country to address menstrual health and hygiene in the classroom and by providing them with new teaching tools to facilitate their work.
