This form will help us plan for your time in providing Covid-19 Response #BeyondSTEM911.
Our #BeyondSTEM911 on Fridays initiative in collaboration with Mirror of Hope CBO brings role models beyond STEM together to supply sanitary pads, mentor girls and boys in sex education, self-awareness, peer pressure control, drug abuse prevention and support education resource development for continued learning in Kibera.
The in person-hours are between 9 am – 11 am Fridays. You do not have to be in a STEM career to respond to our #BeyondSTEM911 call to action.
InspireHER STEM mission is to connect less privileged girls to STEM mentors so we can advance career exposure and life skills development.
Most of our girls in Kibera don’t have access to the internet but porn is sold at 5 bob (USD 5 cents) at the movie shops. Some have to engage in transactional sex to put food on the table and access sanitary towels.
Their greatest desire from one of our recent surveys is to get mentor advice, keep learning and be kept busy from peer pressure. Our COVID-19 initiative with Mirror of Hope CBO stops the setback and keeps girls learning beyond the pandemic.
We dispel the myths surrounding sex and fight the rising cases in underage pregnancies. As we met the girls in Kibera we learnt of so many myths of why they are engaging in sex.
Help stop the setback and get girls back in school.
