WASTE PAPER BEAD JEWELERY
CHILD engages girls in making paper bead jewelery from waste paper, fiber table mats, African bags, photo frames and all other forms of art as the client may wish. The project aims at supporting girls access to education by affording the poor girls school fees and scholastic materials such as books, pens, shoes, school bags and sanitary towels. Poverty has had negative consequences on the girls' access to education and this coupled with the patriarchal society norms, has perpetuated the inhibition of girls enjoying equal rights to education just like their male counterparts.CHILD aims at enhancing the enrollment and retention of girls in schools.
