Girls Parliament

Girls Parliament was formed by members of the Kambia Adolescent Girls Chapter as an advocacy network for girls’ rights, policy review and law reform, and to address child abuse cases in Kambia District. The network has a Mock Parliament where issues affecting girls are discussed. They also educate other girls about their rights. Girls Parliament has also been involved in community sensitisation and radio discussions and talk shows raising awareness about child abuse and related child protection concerns in the district. Their vision is to empower girls to influence policy reviews addressing girls’ issues across the nation.
