What We Do


A GYWs' place to learn and grow together

Economic strengthening The FREE GIRLS CLUBS

GLS aims to help Girls and Young Women develop soft skills to enhance their employability, income generation, financial resilience, and economic empowerment. They are building an entrepreneurial movement advocating for their economic freedoms and rights against patriarchal structures, which hinder their attainment of positive educational and health outcomes, including financial independence.

Our Operations

Economic strengthening The FREE GIRLS CLUBS

GLS promotes employment and income generation for girls and young women, fostering financial resilience, promoting entrepreneurial mindset, and challenging patriarchal structures, while promoting positive educational and health outcomes.

Linking childcare to Economic Justice -The Care World Programme

GLS is implementing the Care World Program to address gender inequities in the labor market by curating informal childcare units in informal settings, focusing on providing childcare and protection for women working in informal or formal settings.

Movement Building - Leadership & Advocacy training

GLS targets girls and young women to address sustainable challenges like innovation, care, teamwork, equality, education, climate change, SGBV, and economic empowerment/justice.

Organizational development

We work with families, communities, and institutions to effect structural changes, partnering with civil society organizations and addressing intersectionality of discrimination. Our next strategy includes movement building tactics and economic justice.

GLS places great importance on assisting teenage mothers in their pursuit of dreams and education. However, this objective can only be realized if there is proper provision for child care.

May our future be filled with happiness and may we strive to provide education to every girl. It is imperative that we do not leave any girl child behind, as educating them is crucial for empowering our nation.”

“As the present generation of women, we are witnessing the unprecedented impacts of climate change, and it is our duty to respond as we are the caretakers of our nation. The pressing nature of the climate emergency is clear, and despite the challenges we face, we still possess the chance to shift the balance in our favor”
