Our Purpose

Girl Power UK is on a mission to instil a profound sense of self-belief, leadership, and confidence in young women. We achieve this by raising awareness and equipping them with the skills and tools they need to not only thrive in employment, education, and training but also to succeed in life.

Our Objectives

  • Menstrual Healthcare Awareness: We aim to increase awareness about menstrual healthcare, breaking taboos, and ensuring that young women have access to the knowledge and resources they need.
  • Using Football for Aspiration: Football isn’t just a game; it’s a powerful tool to inspire and unite. We use football to raise the aspirations of young women and promote teamwork.
  • Employment and Developmental Skills: Our program imparts practical employment and developmental skills, giving young women a competitive edge in the job market
  • Addressing Current Issues: We actively raise awareness about the pressing issues that young girls face, sparking vital conversations and driving positive change.
  • Informed Choices: Girl Power UK empowers young women to make informed decisions about their future, ensuring they have the knowledge and confidence to pursue their dreams.
  • Independence and Confidence: We encourage independence and instill greater self-confidence in young women by supporting them in addressing and resolving challenges within their communities.
