Girls Excel works with girls and young women in different communities in the South West, North West, Littoral, Centre, Adamawa and Far North Regions of Cameroon
We educate girls on good menstrual hygiene practices, how to sew their own reusable pads and understand their menstrual cycle using the menstrual beads.
We create girls-led clubs in rural communities where we train girls as peer educators on MHM, reproductive health education and life long skills. The girls replicate this solution by training more girls in their schools/communities.
Our projects informs, educate and empowers adolescent girls and young women so that they can make informed choices about their reproductive health.
Our projects are deeply rooted in human rights. We educate girls on women's rights, child marriage, Gender Based Violence (GBV) and other harmful cultural practices which threatens the fundamental human rights of girls and women.
We do not only work with girls and young women in rural communities, we also empower them to hold institutions accountable for their commitment towards women rights and gender equality.
Through our Girls-led clubs, we inform, educate and empower the girls in our clubs about the SDGs, its impact on sustainable development and how girls can become champions of the SDGs in Cameroon.
Girls Excel partners with schools, organisations and communities to promote projects that encourage girls to stay and excel in school. Our projects focuses on adolescent girls and young women, menstrual hygiene management, reproductive health and human rights education.
