GIRLS' POWER INITIATIVE (GPI)

To empower children and young females with accurate information and skills from a gender perspective for social action
Entrepreneurship Skills Training for Young Women
 
GPI's six month entrepreneurship skills training program provides out of school girls and young women information on small business management as well as skills training in either sewing, shoe making, or fish farming. The training is followed by a 3 month internship with local businesses, and graduates have the opportunity to use GPI's Creative Commune of machines and tools for one year afterwards. Graduates of the program have better chance in being financially independent. project reportread updates from the field
Improving Adolescent Girls Access to SRHR
 
GPI's weekly safe space lessons provide an opportunity for hundreds of 10-18 year old Nigerian girls to become empowered with factual information on gender, life management skills, adolescent sexuality, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. Girls graduating from the three year program use the information gained to carry out social work interventions in rural communities on issues of early marriage, teenage pregnancies and FGM which have led to a reduction in these practices. project reportread updates from the field
