The purpose of this meeting was to come up with a girl friendly, easy to read manual on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) for FLAGS participants who are out of school girls aged 10-19 years. The manual will also serve as a text with which the girls would be taught about GBV in their safe spaces.

Participants were split into five different groups according to their areas of expertise to develop content for the five modules of the manual. On the final day of the review, participants from all the groups merged to review the entire text. At the end of the review, the team was able to develop a working draft for the FLAGS manual which will be published and used to teach beneficiaries of the FLAGS project.
