I think that this is a wonderful initiative and it is impressive to see how many girls the project can reach. I also applaud the idea of using a peer group (the 'older' girls, in this case) to provide mentorship, as this ensures mentors have a real understanding of the specific circumstances that the girls are in and hopefully enhances the success of the program.

I do have a question surrounding the cell phones - will you also be providing the mobile phones to the participants or are they expected to have their own phones?

Hi Bettina!
Great idea - I really love the intergenerational component of this and the idea of applying it to public spaces! I saw that you were working through different patterns for the 'obstacles' and wanted to recommend perhaps placing these to model specific balance exercises - i.e. just like your straight line activity, which is essentially encouraging tandem walking. The Otago exercise program, for example, has a good group of balance exercises which you might be able to simulate.

Hi Eldy! Those are great points! We definitely encourage maintaining movement, inside and outside the home. Thanks for your support.
