Celebrating our Brave Girls!

We’re starting this week with a great sense of gratitude and immense pride, as we celebrate our brave girls! The GABECE (Grade 9 Exams) results are out and our ladies are shining like the stars they are.

Today, we celebrate 4 of them who bagged the much-desired Aggregate 6, taking their places as the top students in the country.

Ancha, Fatima, Oumie and Rejoice are all pupils of St. Theresa’s Upper Basic School, as well as brave girls in our #TYW4Girls Mentorship Programme. We’ll be sharing more results from the girls as we get them.


Join us to celebrate these brilliant ladies. We can’t wait to see what the next phase of their journey looks like.

Our Girls Have Graduated!

Following three months of weekly training, bonding, inspiration and a beautiful sisterhood, our 40 brave girls have graduated from the third session of our Girls’ Mentorship Programme.

It’s been an incredible journey, and we couldn’t have been prouder of how far we have come with these amazing ladies from St. Theresa’s Upper Basic and Latrikunda Upper Basic Schools. Their performances at the graduation ceremony were a strong testimony of the journey we have shared with them, and we are excited to see what they do next.

We thank everyone who has supported us and the girls, as well as all partners who honored our invitation to celebrate our brave girls. Special mention to UNFPA The Gambia for believing in our vision to create a new generation of strong, bold, fearless and brave young women leaders. The stories from these girls speak for themselves.We are grateful!
