Empowering the girl child

What is the Girl Parliament Project?

Girl parliament is an innovative program of empowering the girl child both in schools and the communities in which the girls lives in. The project is intended to make school and community environments safe for the girl child to prosper intellectually and utilize her potentials to the maximum without any hindrances and intimidation.
This is done to get the non-school going girls also to participate in the program, but having an official sitting at least once in a month. The parliamentary sittings of both the schools and the communities then culminate into a national event held once every year.

Project Objectives

  • The project trains the girl child to encourage, advice and advocate for each other in the many challenges that they face in the communities they live in as well as at school.
  • If a girl gets comfortable in confiding in her fellow sister, then some of the poor decisions that are life challenging are reduced.
