Girls'Net

Welcome to our newly revamped web and mobisite. Girls'Net, together with the Department of Communications, has been busy advancing their social and multimedia programme, culminating in our new and revamped site. The GirlsNet Mobisite project aims to provide a space for learning, sharing and networking for advocacy for girls.  The content is primarily produced or developed by the girls, however, where needed it is sourced. This platform gives the girls the opportunity to feed content onto the website with the citizen journalism skills they have learned. It's an ideal opportunity for them to document issues they are concerned about in their community and teach others how to do the same.

Enjoy
