Girl's Voice Initiatives

Girl’s Voice Initiatives

Tanzania

Girl’s Voice Initiatives aims to support girls through offering access to quality education, information on girls’ rights, life skills, psycho-social support and economic empowerment in Bukombe, Tanzania. The group is made up of ten girl entrepreneurs who want to address the challenges facing girls in their community. Their programmes are based in education, health and WASH sectors for development. Group members have been unable to progress their businesses due to the restrictions implemented in response to Covid-19 in Tanzania. Girl’s Voice Initiative aims to resume their business activities, in order to be able to continue to support girls who come from poor families and provide them with access to education, health care, sanitation and leadership development skills. The group also hopes to hold sessions focussing on life skills, leadership and management, using technology for development/innovations and capacity building.
