Girls in Charge

Program Overview


Once the women have begun to believe that they can be in charge of bringing change. They will form community groups. These groups will meet weekly and discussion issues they may face on a personal level up to a national level, and take charge of the decision making process. Girls in Charge are a judgment free zone with a platform of respect for each other. Girls can face stigmatization for many different things, having a place to share personal issue is a healing process. Then common threads will be identified, problems reviled, and Actions towards a solution.

The project seeks to encourage, mentor, empower, and provide adolescents the opportunities to develop into productive citizens. It will increase access to Sexual and Reproductive Health services and information, as well as quality life skills development and empowerment programmes for adolescents. The proposed interventions will further help adolescents to identify health issues associated with risky behavior, attitudes and practices, and make healthy behavioral choices, such as reporting abuse and the prevention of diseases like HIV/AIDs, etc. The project will be implemented in Peace Island, Congo Town, Montserrado County.

Placement Length

The average volunteer placement is around three months which allows volunteers to establish solid relationships in the community and contribute a reasonable amount of time to the projects. It is important to recognise that, although the volunteers will benefit enormously from their experience volunteering.

Program Coordination

It is very important to maintain consistency and continuity in relationships, projects and work already underway and, to this end, we have a Volunteer Projects Manager who is responsible for all volunteers.
