Girls Voices Initiative is empowerment by girls, through girls, and for girls! We call it the “Girl Domino” - an empowerment system that creates a multiplier effect with the sole aim of connecting, strengthening, and amplifying girls’ voices for positive impact in their communities. We provide safe and engaging platforms for adolescent girls to tell their stories and inspire other girls so they can amplify their voices on issues affecting them and make their voices count. Essentially, we build girl leaders who build and support other girls so that girls train girls and tell other girls' stories.
Supporting Women and Girls Through Empowerment (SWAG Through Empowerment), is a project funded by Mundo Cooperante; which targets survivors of early marriages in Northern Nigeria. Women in the North-East, North-West and North-Central are being empowered with sewing skills and Empowerment workshops. They will be supported to start their fashion businesses once they finish their training and they are each responsible for introducing 5 girls from their communities. Through this singular step, these ambassadors will rid their local communities of early marriage of girls.
