WE ARE Girls Lead Benin

Girls Lead Benin is a private Facebook group in which girls from 18 to 24 years old participate. We learn together in this group about our rights, sorority, sexuality, self-esteem and self-image. We explain our priorities and needs to enable Plan International to focus its work on what matters to us as girls and, we commit to activities and actions together. Girls Lead Benin is an expression created together with us to mean that girls learn, take power, exercise leadership and lead. We come from the following cities in Benin: Cotonou, Abomey-Calavi, Porto-Novo, Parakou, Pobè, Bohicon, Abomey, Savalou, Dassa-Zoumè, Djougou and other cities.
