WHAT GIRLS CAN DO!
We’ve learned that there are no limits and no boundaries.
EMpower’s work with at-risk adolescent girls globally is long-standing. Through substantive partnerships with major foundations, girl-focused networks and collectives, and on-the-ground work with local organizations, EMpower has developed a strong knowledge base in: developing and designing girl-focused and girl-centered programs; measuring girl-focused program results; including boys in a broader vision of the role of gender.
Adolescent girls in particular often face gender barriers and discrimination with deep cultural roots. Of our more than 100 grantee partners, many strongly focus on enriching the lives of adolescent girls. Our partnerships have enabled thousands of young women to stay in school, avoid early marriage and explore nontraditional job pathways. With EMpower’s support, most of our grantee partners have adopted a “gender lens” in their approach and/or actively engage boys in their work to reduce gender bias and barriers.
EMpower supporters are highly creative and develop their own campaigns – with sports activities, theme-focused events, or making an EMpower donation a “gift” at their wedding. Rally your friends and colleagues to join you in your goal to help at-risk youth get the opportunities they deserve. We help get you started and support your efforts.Yes!
