We envision a world where girls are empowered to fulfil their full potential

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

Through our integrated programs, Generation Guiders is giving Adolescent Girls a voice to engage in conversations about the unique barriers they face and how they fight to overcome these obstacles in the rural area.

Our programs aim to ensure that adolescent’s girls have access to accurate information on comprehensive sexuality education to equip them to make informed life choices and prevent early and unintended pregnancy and high rate of school dropout in the rural.
