- Girls Empowerment -
Girls and young women create the families and communities of the future. Empowered to fulfil their potential, society at large benefits hugely; when they are physically, psychologically and socially attacked, everyone loses. Empowering girls and young women is a key lever to transforming society for the better.
In many countries fantastic young women, brimming with potential, are held back because of exploitation, discrimination and lack of understanding. Tag is committed to supporting them to get the support, advice and assistance to face these challenges and grow to be the creative, knowledgeable and empowered women they deserve to be and their society needs them to be.
