WELCOME TO GIRLS EXCEL

A social impact organisation providing innovative solutions to diverse challenges affecting girls and women in Cameroon

OUR THEMATIC FOCUS

Reproductive Health Education

As adolescent girls transition to adulthood, they are faced with decisions affecting their future especially about their health and wellbeing. Girls Excel empowers girls with information, skills and supports them to make informed decisions about their body, health and rights

Training Peer Educators

Our girls-led clubs train adolescent girls as peer educators on menstrual and reproductive health education. We empower girls to replicate the solutions, create safe spaces where girls can talk freely about issues affecting their bodies and ask questions without fear or shame

Menstrual Hygiene Management

Lack of access to menstrual hygiene tools affects the health, education and self-esteem of adolescent girls. We address these challenges by providing innovative solutions, enabling girls to remain in school

Human Rights Education

Girls/women are at risk of various forms of human rights violations in Cameroon ranging from child, early and forced marriages, teenage pregnancy, rape, GBV. Addressing is a first step towards empowering girls and ensuring gender equality

Advocacy

Girls Excel empowers adolescent girls and young women in rural communities to influence public policies around education, health and human rights. These girls are equipped with leadership skills to hold local and national policy makers accountable.

SDGs

Girls Excel works with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We address period poverty (Goal 1), good health and well-being (Goal 3), quality education (Goal 4), gender equality (Goal 5), reduced inequalities (Goal 10) and partnerships for the goals (Goal 17)

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I just wanted to tell you that I am using your teachings on menstrual hygiene management to impact hundreds of young girls here. Teaching at the Nkambe Field Youth camp last Thursday at Binka, more than 70 young girls were touched to the bone by teachings emanating from a man's mouth. Praise God it was awesome and thank God for Girls Excel.
