Adolescent Girls Learning Community launched in Delhi!

Posted 17 July 2017 in EMpower News, Grantee Partner News   |   Share


EMpower’s second Adolescent Girls Learning Community has been launched in Delhi!

Why is this good news? Because it means more positive change is happening across India for adolescent girls! EMpower organizes and funds initiatives like Learning Communities that bring together grantee partner organizations. By forming a network where learning, new ideas and best practices are shared, adolescent girls are further empowered to enact change in their communities.

The Learning Community in Delhi is being led by EMpower grantee partner Swechha, and brings together five Delhi-based EMpower grantees - Chintan, Feminist Approach to Technology (FAT), The YP Foundation, and Joint Operation for Social Help (JOSH). It is girl-led. Young female staff members from each organization are being trained in leadership and project management. They will then mentor and train adolescent girl participants (aged 15-19) who will take it a step further by developing and implementing initiatives to address issues such as sexual harassment, and bring about change.

EMpower’s first Adolescent Girls Learning Community has been active in Mumbai since 2012, and has clearly demonstrated that adolescent girls and organizations can use the power of networks to amplify their voices and create results such as improving the visibility and safety of girls within their own communities.
