Purposeful is an Africa-rooted global hub for girls’ activism. For millennia girls have played a critical role in struggles for freedom and liberation. From Africa’s anti-colonial movements to the Arab spring to climate justice organising and everything in between – their resistance has always sparked and sustained transformational change. And yet, too often girls are separated and sidelined from resources and shut out from decision-making spaces, their power deliberately obscured and hidden from view. Centering the political power of young feminists across the world, we work so that girls and their allies have access to the resources, networks and platforms they need to power their activism and remake the world.
As an Africa rooted, feminist movement building hub for girls, Purposeful works to shift the allocation of resources, policies and programmatic practices to work for girls across local, national and global decision-making spaces. We leverage learnings from our own practice to support others to move from protectionist to power-building approaches that promote the collective liberation of girls. Working in partnership with civil society and development communities we hold learning space, convene practitioners, build national coalitions and co-create a collective advocacy voice.
