Gbortima Ladies in Development

Gbortima Ladies in Development was established in 2019 in Moyamba District to respond to the needs of girls in the community. A group of 30 girls between the ages of 10-24 came together to support teenage mothers and their babies, orphans and children living with disabilities. Group members also put their resources together to support another member of the group to start a business that supports more girls. They supply girls with pads, school materials, baby things and foodstuffs. They also have mentoring sessions for teen mothers. The Fund is strengthening their support for girls.
