Girl2Girl Empowerment movement is a young–women led organization based in Freetown which was set up in response to a study conducted with girls affected by teenage pregnancy. this empowering process resulted in the girls requesting support from a UK based organization Foundation for Women’s Health Research and development (FORWARD) to help set up a programme to reach out to other girls at risk in their local communities.G2G was officially registered in 2013 with the Government of Sierra Leone GoSL through the ministry of Social Welfare Gender and Children’s Affairs as a non-governmental organization.
The overall aim of G2G is to improve the sexual reproductive health and rights of girls and safeguard them from gender based violence including sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation (FGM), child marriage and teenage pregnancy. G2G strives to equip girls at risk with leadership skills to become advocates in their communities to reach out to other girls through the girls clubs. We work in six communities in Western Area Urban and Rural…Waterloo, Fourah Bay, Fullah town, Brook fields, Red pump and Grey Bush. In each of these networks there are 25 members with a trained leader who provide mentorship and training for these girls on issues affecting them and provide a safe platform for frank discussions. G2G works particularly with girls and young women in slum areas in Freetown.
