About Girl Effect

Girl effect believes in a vision where girls actively participate in decisions about their lives, fully supported by their family, community and the broader system.

We seek to do this by reframing girls in society. This reframing is a process about changing knowledge, aspirations, attitudes, beliefs and practices of girls and those around to make positive shifts in what people think, feel and do-both about girls and for girls.

Specifically, the objectives of this reframing process are to increase adolescent girls’ value, visibility, voice and connections – to each other and those around them. We believe these four outcomes are critical building blocks in reframing how girls are seen, understood and valued – and to build their ability to make and take positive choices and decisions in their lives.

This process of reframing seeks to address change at different levels among girls; in families and communities; and across wider society. We are cautious not to expect girls to achieve change alone, but recognize that in addition to inspiring and enabling girls, change needs to happen across the environment in which girls live, and among those that hold power in a girls’ life.
