GIRL HUB IS A STRATEGIC COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE UK'S DEPARTMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (DFID) AND THE NIKE FOUNDATION. GIRL HUB HELPS TRANSFORM THE LIVES OF ADOLESCENT GIRLS LIVING IN POVERTY BY UNLEASHING THEIR POTENTIAL AND EMPOWERING THEM WITH THE ASSETS THEY NEED TO END POVERTY FOR THEMSELVES, THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITY.
What we do:
Girl Hub seeks to empower millions of adolescent girls to reach their potential and lift themselves out of poverty. We shift social norms and drive investment and resources to girls through a unique public partnership model. We combine DFID's depth of development and programming expertise with Nike Foundation's unique insights and innovative approach, to create programmes with, and for, adolescent girls that will have lasting impact.
We work with partners who have scale programmes that reach girls at the right time with the right interventions.
Our work focuses on 4 areas:
1. Bring girls' voices to the forefront and involve them in the
design and implementation of policies
2. Develop social communications to inspire and engage girls and drive social norms change to elevate the visibility of girls
3. Inform and influence decision-makers to invest in effective policies and programmes that benefit girls
4. Invest in robust data and evidence to track the impact on girls
Where we work:
Girl Hub is a network of operations covering London, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Nigeria.
GIRL HUB LONDON advocates for policy change to ensure that programmes work better for girls.
GIRL HUB ETHIOPIA works with partners to achieve zero tolerance towards gender-based violence. We aim for all Ethiopian girls to complete primary education and transition to secondary education, and to delay marriage and pregnancy for girls until they are 18.
GIRL HUB RWANDA works to enable all of Rwanda's 1M adolescent girls to fulfill their potential. We focus on enabling girls to complete junior secondary school, access and control economic assets, control their reproductive health and rights, and avoid and manage violence.
GIRL HUB NIGERIA works to empower adolescent girls and to keep girls in schools. We are activating our partners to help increase the age that girls marry in Nigeria.
