Girls for girls

With our #girlsforgirls blog girls learn from each other and support each other, especially at the transition from school to work.

The blog is created especially by girls from Cologne while our groups of girls in Rwanda and South Africa also contribute content regularly. Furthermore, all girls are invited to submit blog posts and join! For our girls’ groups in the different countries, beyond the blog, we provide locally developed projects by local groups that give girls direct support for a successful start into the future.
