Challenge

The region where GGG will be active mainly consists of farmers and fishermen. Unemployment is enormous and girls are expected to work in the home and on the land. Prostitution and child trafficking is high especially on the coast and when you are on the street you see a lot of children walking.

Solution

Goals: -To register more girls in school and to have more girls present in school. -Mobilizing girl groups and working on self-reliance and their talents. -Changing the image among parents about the importance of the education of girls. -Uniting parents, officials, teachers, nurses, community leaders to promote the education of girls. -Promoting personal responsibility and social integration in the communities with the support of leaders to achieve a sustainable change in the education of girls.

Long-Term Impact

GGG thinks it is very important that the communities stay on the path of change, even if we no longer support them physically. We believe that by training, inspiring and mobilizing them to think about solutions from their community, they will take responsibility for the challenges they face and will work together from there. In this way they are on the way to sustainable social change.
