The present generation, the “I Generation”, are subject to various challenges, including the good and the bad of social media, including the fast pace of questionable information – distorting the age appropriate environment, and a misconception of maturity. The secular needs expected of our youth are so vast that activities such as self-reflection are a rare luxury.
The Girls Club was created with the aim of addressing such concerns, whilst building self-confidence with dignity and turning them into Leaders of Tomorrow. The Club offers an enabling and safe environment for young women to express their thoughts and reflection of one’s inner-self. It also encourages empowerment and autonomy of women by instilling leadership qualities through interventions such as TedTalks, Mentors, Guest Speakers, Motivational Movies, including different art forms such as music, dance, drama, painting to name a few.
The Girls Club is active in Dar-es-salaam, Mbeya, Mwanza and Zanzibar. Club activities nurture self-reflection and development aimed at psychosocial achievements for our young women. Some sessions are held collaboratively with other Jamati institutions for collective development and offer mutual benefit for both boys and girls.
