Webinar: Teenage pregnancies and early marriage in Kenya: Girls’ perspectives on the effect on education.
Date: 13 September 2022.
Time: 16:00-17:00 (UTC+3) Nairobi time (time zone converter).
The Government of Kenya has ratified various international protocols and developed several national education policies and laws that promote efforts toward national and international goals. Despite this, bringing girls to school, retaining them, and transitioning them to higher levels have remained negatively affected by several factors in different regions of Kenya.
Two issues severely affecting girls’ education are teenage pregnancies and early marriage. Through this INEE Community of Practice conversation organized by the #kenya channel, we will hear directly from NoonKopir Girls Secondary School students on how their and other students’ education has been impacted by teenage pregnancies and early marriage, and get insights on their knowledge of sexual health.
An open discussion/Q&A between the students and participants will also be facilitated.
