GIRLS: Grow Inspire Relate Lead Succeed
Impact Assessment

Fiji Women’s Rights Movement – 76 Gordon Street, Suva

The Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is renowned for its Grow Inspire Relate Lead Succeed (GIRLS) Theatre Program. This three-year transformative leadership program targets 10 – 12 year old girls and uses theatre-based activities to heighten their awareness on human rights, feminism and gender. Theatre allows our participants to engage in discussions on issues affecting them regardless of their ethnic, religious and soci-economic backgrounds, thus transforming them into confident GIRL leaders. In total 35 girl participants from the communities of Navua to Nausori have graduated from the program.

FWRM worked with Informal Education & Theatre Consultants (IeT Consultants) from 2013- 2015 to design and implement the GIRLS program, where interactive methods such as storytelling, acting, script writing, dance, yoga, stage design, stage setup, painting and craft were involved. GIRLS have produced two distinctive plays, “Time to Tell” and “A Series of Unfortunate Events- Fiji Style”, which were showcased to public audiences in three community, as well as a number of school performances. Parents and Carers were also included in a series of information sessions to foster a more supportive environment for our participants.
