Education Beyond Academics
Our workshops and seminars incorporate a structured four year curriculum tailored to adolescent developmental needs that help girls acquire, build on and integrate their knowledge into their lives after participation in Just One Person.

- Money Management and budgeting
Empowerment In Kenya, there is a "gap year" between graduation and post secondary opportunities. Girls are especially vulnerable at this time. Their continuing involvement in JOP programs ensures that they stay on course and gives them a chance to practice their newly acquired skills while giving back to their communities. In 2011, Just One Person graduates formed JOP Pioneers, a youth self-help group. These girls are developing a project that make beads, plaits hair, and and selling homemade detergent that will put theory into practice.
