Indigenous Girls Rise


Indigenous Girls Rise was created by young adolescent girls to promote girls’ education and contribute to end early and forced marriages within communities in Cameroon. The group also raises awareness about the dangers of early and forced marriages and the importance of sending the girl child to school. They have organised training sessions to promotes girls’ leadership by providing a platform that allows girls to speak confidently in public and in their communities. Indigenous Girls Rise have trained around 40 pairs of educators to go door to door in their community to raise awareness about the right of the child and gender-based violence.
