Trailblazers, a non-governmental organization (NGO), that seeks to empower women both young and old through mentoring and coaching, has partnered with Street Girls Aid, an organization that recruits girls from the various market centers to counsel and advise them on life-changing skills, and also directs them towards their interest in vocational skills.
Trailblazers’ objective is to train and encourage its target to develop their capabilities to become responsible and independent.
