Building a Girls’ Rights Movement
Girls Voices Initiative is a girls’ rights movement educating adolescent girls and young women about their rights and empowering them to champion advocacy for the protection of their rights in society. We target adolescent girls with life, social survival skills, digital and financial literacy skills, advocacy skills, and citizen journalism skills to empower them to explore competing opportunities and improve their livelihood chances. Also, we empower girls and young women to use technology and digital media to amplify their voices to key stakeholders and influencers in their lives.
We promote Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) education for girls and empower them with knowledge, skills, and mentorship that equips them to create a better future for themselves and for Africa. Our Programs are designed to prioritize active engagement, innovation, creativity and problem-solving among Nigerian girls. Our curriculum is aimed at fostering a spirit of collaboration, inquiry, and the effective use of technology in everyday life alongside the love for applied technology in solving Africa’s most pressing problems – most especially issues relating to adolescent girls.
We have been able to directly impact over 800,000 girls with our programs and we have worked with adolescent girls to reach over 125 million people through our Girls on the AirWaves radio program where girls anchor the LIVE radio series on ending gender-based violence and advocate for the protection of girls’ rights.
We have hosted several annual, bi-annual, and other periodic events like the Tech Girls Advocacy Program Techxibition, the Girl Summit Program to mark the International Day of the Girl, TechTackle Hackathon, and several digital action campaigns that provide girls with the unique opportunity to explore creative advocacy using technology as they target policymakers and other stakeholders. Our team comprises highly motivated feminists’ activists including Adolescent Girl Leaders who work together to champion the Girls’ Rights Movement in Nigeria. You can join us to make our world better for adolescent girls!
