The Call of Teenage African Girls!
We African girls, from Tunisia, Mali, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Ghana, Kenya, Cameroon and Uganda, gathered here in Nairobi from 10th to the 12th of November, supported by the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) in partnership with her members hereby present our authentic voices to the world. We met as representatives of African girls in all our diversities. We gathered to review the status of African girls in the last 25 years since the adoption of the ICPD program of action in Cairo. We came here to deliberate and have a collective voice as African girls. We are appreciating the opportunity to gather and meet with other girls from across the continent and share ideas and strategies. We have learned a lot about our shared life experiences, and are now strengthening our collective engagement as the girls and young women of Africa. Read our full letter here
