  • Mission statement

    Girl Child Network Worldwide is at the centre of a global commitment to gathering, codifying, training and promoting the experiences and expertise of girl advocates so that they unleash girls potential.

    GCNW supports and promotes girls’ rights, empowerment, and education by reaching out to and advancing the circumstances of girls wherever they are economically deprived, at risk of abuse, subject to harmful cultural practices, or living in areas of instability.

    GCNW advocates and speaks out on behalf of girls who are sexually enslaved, deprived the right to school, who are forced to marry and who are invisible and do not seem to exist due to disease, poverty and deprivation.

    We are an organisation that believes that much as girls have challenges and problems, supporting their economic empowerment goes a long way in liberating them from harmful cultural practices and gross violations of their rights. We ensure whatever opportunity comes on the way of girls, we pass it on.
