Road to Equality Lugari Youth Leadership and Mentoring Training Camp
A superb new Road to Equality Appeal project, supporting the Lugari Youth Leadership and Mentoring Training Camp, in the Lugari District of Kakamega County in Western Kenya was launched in December 2020.

The Appeal is planning to support 200-250 girls to attend the empowering programme of workshops and activities, that encourages economic independence and stability, women’s participation, leadership, skills training, and business ownership. Many of the programmes focus on health, youth leadership, sustainable agricultural use, rural micro-enterprise, employment and career development, all aimed at progressing the skills and confidence of the girls involved.
The Road to Equality has already awarded $10,000 USD towards vital building work at the community centre, to help house the girls during their time at the Camp in response to the restrictions and measures introduced during COVID-19.
The Appeal hopes to raise US$105 (£80) for each girl attending the Camp, through the generosity of Soroptimist donations. This will cover the costs of meals, transportation, and training materials, for at least 200 girls enrolling in the Leadership Programme in 2021.
Despite the difficulty in fundraising in the face of the Covid-19 Pandemic, some support by SISWP Clubs would go a long way to support this vital project for these girls.
