Girls Uplift Change in Kenya
The Pastoralist Girls Initiative (PGI) supports Somali women and girls to develop leadership skills and knowledge of their rights and the new Kenyan constitution. PGI has organized about 50 girls’ forums to provide safe spaces for adolescent girls to learn about their rights. PGI advocates for girls to stay in school, for the community to stop the practice of female genital mutilation and protests against early marriage.
