This is a story of a girl who believed in her power. Founded in 2002 by seven young women, Aware Girls empowers young women and girls living in the NW tribal region of Pakistan.
They provide access to education and health resources, recreational activities, employment avenues, and other social services.
In this video, you’ll meet a girl discriminated against who felt harassment was a barrier to her opportunities. She discussed it with her friends and realized they felt the same way. Selected for a Peace in Leadership program, she transformed from a shy participant to become a leader.
Today, she works to transform men’s attitudes and encourage girls to speak up against issues.
