Amos@6: Season 2 back catalogue

This is a back catalogue of Amos@6 webinars from Season 2 featuring hour-long conversations with thought-leaders and Amos partners and friends.

Episode 1:
The Impact of Covid-19 on Girls and Young Women
Featuring Paul and Bakiyam Sunder Singh from Karunalaya in India, and Liz Mnengwa from Glads House Kenya.

Progress in securing the rights of women and girls will be set back decades by the Coronavirus pandemic unless there is rapid action. For those who have experienced the least progress so far — young women and girls living on the streets — the impact will be even more acute.

In this webinar we heard an update from Paul and Bakiyam Sunder Singh from Karunalaya in India, and Liz Mnengwa from Glads House Kenya about how they’ve been responding to the pandemic with the girls they support, the challenges they’re encountering and what needs to be done to overcome them.
