One of AD’s main goals is to promote gender equality by developing young girls who are well-informed, confident, and empowered to take the lead. The Girls’ Groups meet on a weekly basis to discuss issues that affect them as women and provide encouragement to one another. They incorporate fun activities such as picnics, cooking lessons, aerobics, and dance lessons to attract more girls to their meetings. The members go for weekly outreaches to area schools to form girls clubs which they then help sustain with information, skills development, and social support. Furthermore, Africa Directions has a Girls’ Day on a quarterly basis to attract more girls to the centre and promote women’s issues.
