Key Points of the Program

Holistic Engagement: The program adopted a holistic approach, offering a diverse range of activities tailored to the interests and needs of the participants. From games that enhance emotional intelligence to engaging in cooking, art and crafts, hygiene awareness sessions, and sports activities, every aspect of the program was designed to capture the girls' attention and encourage their active participation.

Educational and Fun: By blending educational elements with fun and interactive activities, the Deadly Girls Group succeeded in creating an environment where learning became enjoyable. Through games and hands-on experiences, the girls acquired valuable life skills while forming strong bonds with their peers and mentors.

Promoting Healthy Habits: Sessions focusing on hygiene and health not only imparted practical knowledge but also instilled a sense of responsibility towards personal well-being. Learning about the importance of hygiene practices and nutritious cooking empowered the girls to make healthier choices in their daily lives.

Benefits of the Program:

Improved School Attendance: Through its engaging and enriching activities, the Deadly Girls Group succeeded in positively influencing school attendance rates. By creating a supportive environment outside of school hours, the program instilled a sense of enthusiasm for learning among participants, translating into improved attendance records.

Enhanced Social Skills: Participation in group activities and collaborative projects facilitated the development of social skills among the girls. From communication and teamwork to empathy and conflict resolution, the program provided ample opportunities for the girls to hone these essential skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Empowerment and Confidence: As the girls actively participated in various activities and witnessed their own growth, they experienced a boost in confidence and self-esteem. The program empowered them to express themselves freely, embrace challenges, and strive for personal excellence.
