Who We Are

Girl Effect is a non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need – from chatbots to chatshows and TV dramas to in-person clubs. Reaching more than 20 million in 20 countries across Africa and Asia, Girl Effect creates content that helps girls make choices and changes in their lives during the critical years of adolescence. By igniting their confidence to act differently at a time that can define their future, every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and livelihood.
