The SuperGirl Project

Social isolation, economic vulnerability and lack of access to health care prevents healthy transitions from girlhood to womanhood, especially for vulnerable adolescent girls in low-resource communities.

Across rural communities in Africa, poor girls often are at high risk of gender-based violence, unintended pregnancy and HIV. Many drop out of school, are unable to find employment, lack the ability to make independent decisions, and are not being reached by existing programs for young people.

Our The Super Girl Project is a girl child centric program which works with teenage and adolescent girls between the ages of 12-19. This program focuses on inspiring girls to be STRONG, BOLD, SMART and STRONG, thereby optimizing their potentials for self and societal development.

The objective of this program is to expose beneficiaries to enhanced capacity for Life Skills, development of the WHOLE girl, equip them as a head start to leading fulfilling and productive lives, break the cycle of poverty and become role models in their communities.

Our strategy for implementation is to deliver our robust multi-impact training module in strategic sessions for our female beneficiaries across schools and communities. Our trainings are in the following areas;

  • Menstrual Hygiene Management
  • Sex Education
  • Public Speaking
  • Financial Literacy
  • Guidance Counselling
  • Digital Literacy
  • Civic Education.

Adolescence is a pivotal period for youth to acquire the attitudes, competencies, values, and social connections that will help carry them forward to successful adulthood

We are inspired by our projected outcome of our program on teenage girls who are beneficiaries of our project for the following;

  • The acquisition of personal and social assets—in the domains of physical, intellectual, psychological and emotional, and social development—leads to positive adolescent development.
  • Adolescents with more personal and social assets in each of these areas have a greater chance of both current well-being and future success.
  • Personal and social assets are enhanced by positive developmental settings.
