Girls deserve equal opportunities

  • We help girls develop knowledge, skills, confidence and leadership skills through girls’ clubs, child and youth groups and children’s networks
  • We provide training and awareness campaigns on human rights, gender equality and where to go for help
  • We encourage girls and women to participate in decision-making at our program level and in community and government meetings, councils and forums
  • We promote women and girls in leadership roles, boost income-generating activities for women and engage boys and men as partners for change
  • We embed gender equality into all we do and adopt policies and practices supporting equal rights and opportunities
