In 2011, Women Win entered into a partnership with five other organisations, to work together to fight the injustices girls and young women face daily in 10 developing countries. Funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Girl Power Alliance worked together to implement programmes that increased protection of girls and young women against violence, and encouraged post primary education and economic and political participation. We're proud to say that after five years, the programme has contributed to positive changes for more than 1.5 million girls and young women!
Women Win worked with and supported programme partners in Nepal, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Zambia, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Bangladesh to implement sport and life-skills programmes for adolescent girls. The Girl Power Programme resulted in a significant drop in physical, sexual, emotional and economic violence against participating girls and young women. The below report highlights some of the programme's successes, including five case studies and important lessons learned.
