We work globally and in Sierra Leone. We experiment with new models to reach girls organising autonomously at the margins of the margins, including girls with disabilities, girls living in deeply rural areas, without phone or internet access, and girls who are usually shut out from resources and decision-making.
Globally, we support girl activists organising across all countries and all regions of the world. Our regional staff and consultants are rooted in local movements and hold a deep understanding of the context of girl organising. We operate in Arabic, English, French, and Spanish.
We are reframing what it means to move resources to these groups – lowering barriers to application by taking proposals in person, on the phone and via WhatsApp voice note in 4 additional local languages including Krio, Mende, Fula and Temne.
We support informal girls formations in very rural areas to access resources in cash – via mobile and in person , while moving away from the usual punitive approach to due diligence so that girls instead make commitments to themselves and each other through giving ceremonies and other community-rooted giving mechanisms.
