Why Girl Child?

Daily there are disasters in homes, schools and communities that affect girls. Girls and young women are at risk of violence in the home, school and community; physical and emotional abuse, sexual abuse, sexual and economic exploitation, trafficking for the purposes of prostitution and forced labour. 

There are some girls who want educational support and others who want to start small income generating projects. Many girls trafficked and sexually enslaved want to escape but lack support to do so. 

Change happens when individual girls act locally and think and connect nationally and internationally. Founder members want to see innovative programs being rolled out at grassroots.
