The Girl Impact

Providing girls and young women with a support system and new opportunities.

The Girl Impact (TGI) is a collection of gender equality projects across multiple locations that educates and empowers girls and women through six pillars: Education, Health, Income Generation, Self Confidence, Safety, and Early Pregnancy.

We also run programs for boys and men in an effort to reshape gender perspectives, change gender norms, and achieve greater equality.

Ending poverty through girl empowerment

Alongside running workshops for community members, we have implemented the Adolescent Girls Empowerment Program through regular after school clubs. This was developed to teach girls to build confidence and strong support networks, increase knowledge around reproductive health, and develop their decision-making skills.

The Girl Impact aids in the development and education of girls between the ages of 10 and 18 – a crucial time when a girl’s future potential and opportunities can flourish through education, skills learning, and social support, or be stunted by the irreversible effects of child marriage, early pregnancy, HIV, and other preventable hardships.
