Resilience in Girls (RIG)

Resilience in Girls is an innovative group of secondary school girls and young women who are huge friends of the environment – they practise I-Waste, I-Tailoring, I-Catering and I-Farming. They have combined their passion for the environment with their passion for gender equality to support girls by offering them training in Agribusiness and DIY projects such as recycling skills and making reusable sanitary pads, eco-friendly charcoal from coconut shells, flower pots from old tyres, kitchen gloves, and more.
