Girls For A Change is bringing together a community of women and girls to enhance girls' views of their own potential and encourage their innovative nature. Girls voluntarily sign up to participate in a Girl Action Team. Teams are made up of 5-25 girls and facilitated by two adult women coaches who are trained by Girls For A Change to support the girls' projects and enhance the skills, resources and creativity the girls innately possess. Together the team will plan, fund, implement, and lead a social change through weekly or bi-monthly meetings. Coaches provide a safe, supportive space while partnering with the girls to implement their projects. Coaches are offered training and support by GFC throughout the year.
