For the last six months Rotifunk Hospital, using a grant from Peace With Justice, has had an exciting new pilot program called “Letting Girls Be Girls”. Hassanatu, an energetic female health educator, has begun this program with great success. Girls 14 to 17 years of age are being educated on measures to avoid unwanted pregnancies, family planning for teen moms, personal hygiene, and sanitation to combat infectious diseases. Currently 83 girls are enrolled in the program. Hassanatu has traveled to schools and neighboring villages as well as holding classes at the hospital, always met with growing numbers of young girls eager to safeguard their reproductive health as well as their youth.”
