Building Health Equity
PHI’s Rise Up’s Girls Voices Initiative is creating a pipeline of girl leaders. In Kenya, 48 Rise Up girl leaders in the marginalized Maasai community implemented campaigns to end the harmful traditional practice of female genital mutilation and to reduce girls’ dropout rates from school. A new budget line in the Lagos state of Nigeria increased government funding to provide free adolescent and maternal health services across the State, protecting the health and rights of 400,000 girls and women.
