Girls Excel is a non-profit in Cameroon that address girls’ struggle to obtain an education by teaching health education and providing access to menstrual hygiene management allowing them to excel. We exists to create communities in which the absence of reproductive health education and sanitary pads no longer hinder school girls from pursuing their education. At Girls Excel, we design programs that equip adolescent girls and young women with the tools to address reproductive health and other challenges threatening their human rights.
The mission of Girls Excel is to design sustainable programs that equip adolescent girls and young women with the tools to address period poverty and other reproductive health challenges threatening their human rights and overall wellbeing
Our approach includes training adolescent girls as peer educators so that they can gain the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about their health and replicate these solutions with their peers for them to navigate these challenges.
We believe that adolescent girls already have a voice but they need a safe space to express their thoughts and opinions without fear and shame.
To create communities in which all girls in Cameroon experience safety and academically thrive in a system that upholds values for reproductive health education as part of human rights.
