Mission:
Global Girl Media (GGM) nurtures the voice and self-expression of teenage girls in under-served and marginalized communities by training them to become citizen journalists, harnessing the power of new digital media to inspire self-esteem, community activism and social change. By linking young women internationally with seasoned reporters, educators and filmmakers and pairing US communities with international cities to create a peer-to-peer international network of girls, GGM empowers girls to make media that matters, improves media literacy, and encourages the promotion of healthier media messages about girls and women.
Results:
Here’s what some of the GlobalGirl Reporters had to say about their experience:

“GlobalGirl changed my life, it made me feel like I was important.”
“Holding the camera was like holding the future in my hands…”
“We’ve not only become sisters, but advocates for our community…”
“I learned how to use my cell phone for change, not just to text about personal girl things…it gave me a sense of the power of media and myself”

We have seen the power of media and its exponential effect from our work in South Africa, Morocco and L.A. For each student, we can say that they impact their community in incremental ways:

1) Immediate: each girl becomes a role model in her household and community, reaching 10-100 additional people at home and in school, by her mere presence with a camera, her engaging in current affairs, questioning her surroundings.

2) Indirect: The impact the training has on each girl’s life and how she carries her newfound voice into her studies and work influences her educational and emotional future, as well as those of her siblings, friends, and followers.

3) Globally: The reports the girls produce have the potential to reach millions via internet and cellphone distribution.

I was missing the tools to make change happen, before Global Girl Media came to Morocco. And if it wasn't for that newspaper I read that morning of August, I wouldn't be telling you about my journey as a global girl. I thought I had missed my chance to become a journalist but Global Girl Media ... more »
