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.
Programs: Morocco, South Africa, Los Angeles, Chicago
