Watch the girls empowerment programs from 1998 to 2009
These are established girls clubs that have an infrastructure. However, they need some follow up, revival, and advanced training in fundraising in order to become sustainable. In addition, they may set up their own networks. Currently, Tier 1 girls’ clubs only exist in Zimbabwe where they have been operating for over 10 years and there are GCNW alumni. Through leadership grooming and support, alumni has become GCNW Coordinators and have a role in documenting the model and training others. We strongly feel that empowered girls should demonstrate this has been achieved by moving on to lead empowered lives as women. Clubs in Tier 1 will act as host organizations for training for other girls in Africa, with oversight and support from the center.

Ghana Girls Empowerment Clubs Thriving
We have trained girls in Ghana on Girl Child Empowerment Model. Through Forward UK there is an independent Ghana Girls Networks doing very well. There is a strong Girls Network doing great in Swaziland which we trained in 2006 We pride ourselves in training girls in Africa to lead. We have done that very well.
We have trained a number of grassroots leaders in Africa. They are passionate and committed leaders but are in need of support in establishing girls clubs. These affiliates exist in: Ghana, Botswana, Swaziland, Ethiopia, and South Africa. They need support in finding their own identity and in club development. In addition, they need access to the Girls’ Empowerment and Education Fund (GEEF). In order to encourage the development of strategic funding partners, we will teach affiliates to write their own proposals to donor agencies.
