Help Girls in W. Africa Advocate for their Rights

More than 200 teens participated in the first Adolescent Girls Summit, supported by GFC and local partners, in Monrovia, Liberia on April 12-15. Designed and led by adolescents, the summit brought together girls and boys from rural communities in Liberia and Sierra Leone to raise awareness about violence against girls and to stand together for girls' rights. Your support helped more girls and boys attend the summit and build the confidence they need to advocate for girls' rights.

The summit will equip adolescent girls with greater confidence, knowledge, and connections to advocate for their rights long after the event is over. It will help adolescent boys develop a greater understanding of and commitment to gender equity, shaping their actions as allies for years to come. These long-term skills will help prepare West Africa's next generation of leaders to make substantive progress toward ending violence against girls in their communities and countries.
