BRAVE Rock Girl started in 2011 to create safe spaces for girls in South Africa. It empowers girls to stay in school and encourages women to become economically independent and live healthy, risk-free lives. Through BRAVE Rock Girl’s initiatives, girls gain the self-confidence and skills needed to become agents of social change. The group also engages boys and men in their programming to create a safer South Africa as safety is everyone’s responsibility.
EMpower’s 2nd Girl Fund Grant will support BRAVE Rock Girls in its ongoing leadership transition process — from the founding director to three senior girl leaders. At the same time, it will continue its regular work with young adolescent girls in Manenberg.
Primary Location: South Africa
