Girl Child Network Worldwide

In many countries today, girls lack the freedoms and rights that automatically accrue to boys. Discrimination toward girls mixes with the harsh realities of survival into a dangerous alchemy that prevents girls’ full development as human beings. In large numbers, girls are subject to sexual abuse and harassment, HIV/AIDS, domestic and military violence, trafficking into sexual slavery, and the denial of schooling.

Girl Child Network Worldwide believes that our empowerment model, built in Zimbabwe, having reached some 300,000 girls, can be applied in many places. It’s based on our experience that when girls receive fundamental support and encouragement from each other, gain an education, and learn their legal and human rights, they overcome a range of challenges, growing to fulfill their potential as human beings and as young leaders.

Girl Child Network Worldwide is the only organization to give general support funds to individual girls in communities where they lack the financial and human resources to mobilize and organize.

The future

Nobody can ignore what they are doing is bad anymore. It's a horrible option when others do that but with more awarness and more others that start caring all people will be free! ... Or on jundgment day were screwed... Sorry about that! Well, I admire people who are getting people to care! Thanks and Kudos to you!

Powerful organization

I am fascinated to learn about Girl Child Network- when organizations flourish from the ground up...the energy is strong and vital and lasting. I am eager to hear more about how the organization is going and hear individual stories of girls in Zimbabwe.

Powerful and vital work that you do- hats off to you!

Warm regards,
Laura

Yes.

My best friend is Zimbabwean and is currently living in Zimbabwe. I am very, very excited to hear about this organization. I hope that it empowers girls in Zimbabwe to become strong women and leaders in their community. Peace will prevail if we empower our youth!

I look foward to reading more about this organization! Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times for what you are doing. Be strong and let us know of anything that you need!

Peace and Love,
