WHAT IS GIRL4CE?

GIRL4ce is a youth-led movement for POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE. Young Basotho women and men deliver innovative dramas, speeches, songs, and interactive activities to diverse groups to educate and mobilize them to protect and empower girls and women in Lesotho.GIRL4ce is an edu-tainment program that addresses two of the most harmful gender-based challenges facing Lesotho today:

Child, Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM)

Gender-Based Violence (GBV)

GIRL4ce educates Basotho about actions they can take to put an end to these abusive practices so Lesotho can have a brighter future. GIRL4ce performances are free. If your group is at least 20 people, book a performance date with the GIRL4ce team at Help Lesotho that will impress and inspire!

What Does GIRL4ce Do?

 

SONG

They have rhythm, and more importantly, they have a really important message! GIRL4ce songs are catchy and easy for audience members to sing along to.

COMMITMENT CARDS

After each GIRL4ce performance, Commitment Cards are distributed so audience members can write out what action they will take to protect girls from abuse. Audience members keep these cards as a reminder of their commitment.

DRAMA

The GIRL4ce drama will make you laugh, cry, get angry, and motivate you to end ECFM and GBV in your community. The GIRL4ce actors are a talented group who play their roles with inspiring passion.

EDUCATION

People need to know the facts before they can take action. GIRL4ce ensures audience members of all ages and education levels learn the information they need to make healthy decisions.

SPEECHES

Prepare to cheer on the motivational GIRL4ce speakers who will shock you when they describe how serious the gender inequity in Lesotho really is.

What people are saying

I liked it so much because we could see that even though people thought forced marriage was in the past, you could see from other young girls that it is still happening today.

“In my village many girls are getting married most are born in 1998-2000 being in the program helped me to realize this isn’t good. I am talking to them about who isn’t married and the laws that can protect them from getting married”
