Girls Workshops in Cameroon a Success

61 girls attended the first session. The theme of the event was #BreakTheBias and our target was United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #5: Achieve gender equality and empower all girls. The first workshop (March) started 3:30pm with arrival of girls and staff, followed by the registration of youth participants.

At 4pm, the first phase of the workshop was focused on the life skill: Making Gender Equality a priority in your daily life.The girls pledged the following:

  • #PledgeToUseMyVoice
  • #PledgeToChoose
  • #PledgeToShare

The workshop was interwoven with the life skills and the games implemented simultaneously. At the end of each topic and game, questions were asked. 

Part two of the program was based on group work, participants were divided into three groups based on the pledges, and they were given 10mins to brainstorm on what they have learned. Leaders of both groups facilitated their group’s presentations and time was allocated for questions at the end of each presentation. 

 In May, 68 girls attended the second event in this series.This time we focused on three more pledges:

  • #PledgeToChallenge
  • #PledgeToInclude
  • #PledgeToKnowMyRights

Women’s empowerment is not only to celebrate or advocate for career women. Women’s empowerment celebrates the fullness of ‘womanity’. That is, the opportunity for a woman, no matter where she is in the world, to be at liberty to choose, challenge, to be included and also to know her rights and who she wants to be and thrive: as a homemaker, a career woman or both – free from bias and stereotypes.  This was the main message we shared with the girls. We played games based on the curriculum and ask purposeful questions and answer that reflect the pledges to fight against Gender Bias.

 Part two of the workshop was based on boosting their confidence and self esteem, we shared them into 3 groups, with each pair representing a pledge, we had three volunteers from each group to read, it was very competitive and the group PledgeToChallenge emerged first with the best readers, we ended at 6pm with a group picture.
