Ghotki and Khairpur
SRSO entered into a partnership with RSPN for the implementation of Improving Adolescent Lives in Pakistan in Ghotki and Khairpur , districts of Sindh, with the financial assistance of UNICEF and IKEA Foundation.
This 3 years project is for adolescent empowerment to provide adolescents with assistance in realizing their own expertise and giving them a platform to act from. The primary focus of this project is to support a reduction in child marriage, particularly among adolescent girls.
In addition to this, there is a key focus on providing basic and advanced information and knowledge and equipping adolescents with life skills by different meaningful key interventions which will boost their capacity. This will enable adolescents to build and express their innovative and creative opinions with self assurance and determination, a skill that will be invaluable for promoting and protecting their rights and providing a platform for freedom of expression.
Parents and communities will be capacitated to understand adolescents' rights and support their realization through enhanced access to community-based structures equipped to strengthen the protective environment for children, prevalence of anaemia and malnutrition, attitudes towards domestic violence and abuse.
