Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women program partners Fiji Women’s Rights Movement concluded a two and a half year program recently as 35 young girls aged 10 to 14 graduated from the GIRLS (Grow, Inspire, Relate, Lead, Succeed) program.
The program has been designed to instil feminist values by equipping girls with the confidence to express their opinions and advocate against injustice. Throughout the program, the girls participated in a number of storytelling and theatre productions, depicting the challenges young Fijian girls face in their daily lives. Upon completion, the girls have emerged more confident and ready to defend their rights – a resounding success.
