TRAINING GIRLS GLOBALLY AS HEALTH EDUCATORS


LEARN MOREDONATE
OUT OF THE
600 MILLION
ADOLESCENT GIRLS IN THE WORLD,

many do not receive the health education and support they need to achieve their full potential. Social pressures and gender inequality make adolescent girls globally particularly vulnerable to significant health and educational consequences.

We believe an untapped resource can help address this problem: the girls themselves.

We cultivate a global network of youth health educators (Champions) who lead the educational process in their schools and communities and support one another and their peers in navigating the transition to adulthood.

GIRLS HEALTH CHAMPIONS IN ACTION
OUR YOUTH-LED EDUCATION MODEL WORKS.

We use an innovative, evidence-based peer education model that leverages the voices, talent, and leadership of adolescent girls to disseminate critical health information in schools and communities.

Voices of Our Champions

I want every girl to know she is strong and a Champion.

— Anjali, Girls Health Champion

I know child marriage is a big issue in many communities, and I want it to stop. I want to stand beside and defend girls against this particular practice. Through Girls Health Champions, I have learned about my rights and want to become a lawyer someday to take a stand.

— Leena, Girls Health Champion

I want to be a doctor to heal people, but now I also want to give people the tools to help themselves. As a Champion, I am a leader, a teacher, and a mentor to younger girls.

— Sunaina, future surgeon, Girls Health Champion

The Champions made me realize that menstruation is natural and not ‘unclean,’ as some adults have said to me.
