FundLife was founded on the pricinple that all lives have equal value and potential. We work to protect all children, regardless of sex, age or background. However, through working in marganlised communities and listening to local stories, it became clear that girls face unique challenges that their male counterparts do not.
Girls in poverty are 4x more likely to experience violence than boys, and over 70% of all online expolitation victims are children aged 10-18, ff these, 87% are girls. While victims of sexual exploitation for commercial purposes are predominantly 13 to 18 year-old girls, often, pushed into this dark world by family members desperate and in extreme or acute poverty.
In an effort to keep all girls safe, FundLife created 'Girls Got This' a female-first, action-led movement to protect, educate and empower all girls and give them the same opportunity to a better life as are given to boys.
Through female-first programming, FundLife actively promotes Gender Parity and ensures all thematic work include the protection and advancement programs for girls and young women.
To shift power for gender intersectionality and female empowerment we work with teachers, parents and other members of the community to spread awareness of girl’s rights and to deliver our proven programs to keep girls safe and motivated to follow their dreams. Our programs include;
Protection through Purposeful Play
Education through Peer-Mentorship and Female Champions Curriclum
Empowerment Through Access to Formal Training Programs to Access Dignfiied Employment Opportunties
