GENET promotes girls’ education

Girls Empowerment Network (GENET) says it is doing its best in empowering girls and young women to advocate for gender equality and justice in the country.

Speaking to YFM, the Executive Director of GENET, Faith Phiri said different clubs have been introduced by the organization in order to help in improving girl child education in different schools across the country.

“Girls are able to share experiences on what they are meeting in everyday life and are able to advice each other,” she said.

Phiri also added that the clubs act as the peer to peer mentors and a safe place where girls are able to report the kind of abuses that they face or the challenges regarding to girl education.

Since 2008 the organization has worked in nine districts with 300 schools and about 25,000 girls have benefited from the clubs.
