MAP has been funding programmes to support Ethiopian girls run by the Trampled Rose Association since 2014. In rural areas of the country, girls lack access to education and are prone to early marriage. This not only reduces the chances of success, but also perpetuates the cycle of poverty for the family and the whole community. The overall programme aims to ensure that girls attend school, avoid early marriages and thus prevent obstetric fistula, a real scourge in the region.
Through this project, beneficiaries receive direct assistance covering one or more of the following items, depending on individual needs: housing, food, school uniform, school supplies, primary health needs (including supplies for menstrual care).
Ensure the schooling of 140 young girls, to prevent early marriage and childbirth, the main cause of obstetric fistula.
