that NFAs in collaboration with other concerned organisations should undertake activities to encourage governments to address the problems facing adolescents, especially girls, and enhance the quality of their lives particularly with regard to their education, employment and health.
Such activities should include:
- developing programmes to implement projects and campaigns to draw the attention of teachers, parents and adolescents to problems which have an adverse impact on girls such as early marriage, and teenage pregnancy, and those which adversely affect both sexes, substance abuse, violence, harmful practices, lack of opportunities for secondary education and employment;
- involving young people in the design and carrying out of such activities;
- networking with other NGOs to increase awareness of the problems faced by adolescent girls.
