Girl Effect Rwanda commends the many institutions involved in the development and welfare of young girls. With the support of Gavi, the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization, the Ministry of Health through the Rwanda Biomedical Center, and in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, through the Rwanda Education Board (REB), we have prepared an easy way for young girls to access information that supplements their formal studies: the Ni Nyampinga content is on REB E-learning Platform.
Our goal is to empower girls to own their future, learn about reproductive health, avoid sexual abuse and understand the importance of taking vaccines such as the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and good nutrition from childhood to adolescence.
They will find stories that build their confidence, especially since Ni Nyampinga means ‘a beautiful girl inside and out’ and one who makes healthy decisions.
Girls who feel empowered make good decisions, are healthy and happy and have the confidence to plan for their future, together with their brothers and wider family.
