9ja Girls offers classes for girls to learn skills for life, love & health (LLH). Classes are facilitated by 9ja Girls providers and take place at 9ja Girls Safe Spaces.
Each class includes learning a vocational skill that girls can immediately use to earn an income, such as Ankara design, beadmaking, or liquid soapmaking. The class also covers topics on love and health, including discussion on dating, SRH, and contraceptive methods.
During the class, each girl is invited to attend an opt-out individual counseling session with a 9ja Girls provider. Girls who choose to may take up a contraceptive method during their counseling session.
WHY IT MATTERS
SKILLS FOR LIFE
SKILLS FOR LOVE
SKILLS FOR HEALTH
By teaching skills for life, love & health, girls see contraception as a tool to help them achieve their goals.
Through 9ja Girls vocational skills classes, girls are introduced to skills that can help them become financially independent and provide for themselves and their families. They learn to plan for their future, and how contraception can help them get there.
By teaching girls about communication, mutual respect, and consent, we empower them to engage in healthy relationships and make smart decisions about sex and contraception.
By teaching girls about sexual and reproductive health, providing nonjudgmental counseling, and offering contraceptive services, we help girls understand how to protect themselves and make informed choices that are right for their bodies and lives.
