Who We Are

Purposeful is an Africa-rooted global hub for girls’ organising and activism. We believe that another world is not only possible, it is already being built right here and now, in the ways that girls are organising with each other, imagining with each other, pushing us all a little further towards liberation.

Our vision

Girls are living in safety, dignity and freedom and the world is transformed.

Our ways of being in the world

A set of core beliefs guide all that we do at Purposeful, from the decisions we make to our organisational policies and practices, helping us to show up in this work as girls’ allies and advocates, holding ground so that girls can step into their power.
