Girls' and Women’s

Understanding that adolescent girls and young women face unique challenges in informal settlements, CFK Africa applies a gender lens to its work in Primary Health Care and Education and Livelihoods, ensuring that girls and young women have equal access to opportunities.

We help girls discover their rights and personal leadership capabilities as they build confidence through a combination of mentorship and advocacy efforts. 

Sports for Development

Our flagship Sports for Development project engages youth in team-based sports to teach teamwork, leadership, and equality. Youth also participate in workshops on sexual and reproductive health, WaSH, and gender parity. Our sports programming acts as a gateway, inviting youth to participate in additional youth-friendly programs.
