These girls - and a boy - explain why they are in the Tuseme clubs

TUSEME” a Kiswahili word meaning “Lets Us Speak Out” is an empowerment training for girls, boys and Teachers on Gender Responsive pedagogy. It is a complete community concept and one answer to many concerns; it is an original human right based approach, gender responsive and inclusive. Because of its inclusiveness, the “TUSEME” process is persuasive and effective for social mobilization, which offers a distinct advantage in the effort to promote girls education and gender concerns because it instils oral expression, problem solving, values and attitudes to the youth for survival to enable them live in dignity and to participate fully in their development.
