Out of school girls can be vulnerable to Gender-based violence, early pregnancy, and HIV and AIDS. Mabinti Tushike Hatamu operates community workshops in three regions of Tanzania; Dar es Salaam, Iringa and Ruvuma. These workshops help out of school girls (age10-19) to claim their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights by increasing knowledge of, and access to, services and addressing societal and cultural norms in their communities that underpin Gender-Based Violence.
The workshops also cover life and livelihood skills and provide routes back into formal education, which strengthens their ability to become economically resilient and independent.
