“Girls Inspire”, Nacala

The Girls Inspire project seeks to break the cycle of early and forced marriage of children and address the barriers that impede the economic participation of women and girls. To this end, the project supports education and skills development for vulnerable and hard-to-reach women and girls through open technology-based education, thus enabling distance learning. The project is based on the strong belief that offering educational opportunities to vulnerable women and girls is one of the best investments for sustainable development in the country.

 

In the two years it has been in operation (2016-2018), the project has made significant gains by providing the most vulnerable girls and young people with life skills, personal empowerment, social participation, leadership, literacy, and decision-making, thus leading to their economic empowerment and access to knowledge and information on sexual and reproductive health and rights, which increased the self-confidence of women and girls.

 

Girls Inspire conducted short vocational courses that were developed in response to demands in the employment market in Nacala. Thus, in 2018, 1,434 vulnerable women and girls were trained in employability and entrepreneurship skills which led them to reduce their vulnerability in relation to the cycle of early and forced marriage of children, enabling them to improve their economic and health conditions, and those of their children within their social networks.
