Key Information

The GIRLS Inspire project's holistic approach involves local implementing organisations, community leaders and parents, local government officials, prospective employers, and  girls in hard- to-reach communities. The aim of the project is to empower marginalised girls by training them in livelihoods and life skills - to become productive members of society who understand their rights, earn a livelihood and improve the quality of their lives, while having decision-making powers at both the family and community level. Through this project, COL is partnering with community organisations and institutions to support schooling and skills development for some of the world’s most vulnerable and hard-to-reach women and girls using open, distance and technology-enabled learning.
