Challenge

Many young women around the world continue to lack the right to make decisions over their own body. Discrimination, social norms, deep-rooted attitudes restrict girls' access to information, services and rights and result in early and forced marriage, sexual abuse, harassment, violence and unequal access to education, economic and political opportunities. Domains like sports, technology and media continue to be associated with boys and men and limit access and participation of girls.

Solution

The SELF Academy is a space for girls to Play, Learn, Lead and Be who they are! Sessions on football, computers, filmmaking, photography, theatre, dance, art, writing and journalism, community radio, gender, body image offer diverse ways and mediums for girls to learn, express and create. The academy builds their understanding, sharpens their skills, strengthens their leadership capacities and enables them to explore diverse opportunities for their training, education, and livelihood.

Long-Term Impact

1. Girls feel confident to express and assert their opinions, negotiate early marriage with their families and make their own decisions related to their bodies, health and lives. 2. Girls are able to challenge and speak out against any kind of discrimination and violence. 3. Girls are able to pursue higher education and training as per their interests and are self- reliant.
