    About Girls' Power Initiative Nigeria


    Like Cuso International, our partner the Girl's Power initiative knows that every girl has great inner strength and the capability to take control of their own futures, if only they are given the skills necessary to do so. For over 20 years, this Nigerian not-for-profit has been giving young girls and women the knowledge they require to act and the conviction to overcome prejudices.


    Their successes come from three streams of work: internships which empower women to become leaders in sexual education in their own communities, the Gender Development Institute (GDI) which increases public awareness around the importance of gender equality, and their outreach program which brings the GPIs knowledge and skills development to Nigeria’s most vulnerable girls through school curriculums and intensive holiday programming.
