There is something uplifting about hearing our teenage girls singing ‘I have decided to be educated, I have decided to be educated, I have decided to be educated…no turning back, no turning back’! This is the song sung during meetings. Singing this song every meeting day confirms their seal and passion to get an education no matter the odds that are against them in their homes, families and community.
Girl’s education within Ghana continues to have many challenges. Over 44% of adolescent females are not attending secondary school. The reasons for these low attendance scores are many – teen pregnancy, inadequate financial support, social stigmas, and lack of educational aspiration – but girls’ clubs, such as SFLIGvolunteers Club, are an excellent way to mentor and guide teenagers so that they make the right decisions for their future.
Changemakers Club addresses challenges faced by girls in relation to their education, reproductive health, self-esteem building and future career path.
Sfligvolunteers are looking for individuals or groups of volunteers as well as organizations willing to empower marginalized teenage girls to build their confidence level and passion to stay in school
These girls go through a lot every day to access education. As an organization, our mandate is to have these clubs in the various orphanages, deprived schools and communities where girls go through a lot of inferiority complexes.
We look for volunteers who are also passionate about girls to help us facilitate and run programs for these clubs. Facilitators will work in schools and orphanages where we have the clubs as assistant teaching and counseling advisors. This is to help the girls express themselves during studies, how to express themselves among their peers, and how to act in the lady like manner.
Volunteers are free to develop their own working plan to achieve the purpose of empowering the girls.
