Helping Girls Achieve Their Potential!
SEED Girls is a program designed to empower girls (aged 12-17 years) in Kurdistan, as they navigate gender and social barriers, risks, and the challenges they face during adolescence. SEED Girls fosters a sense of belonging and connection with peers to create a strong, supportive and empowered community.
What Topics Do We Cover?
The parents of SEED Girls are invited to online workshops to complement what their daughters are learning under the program. Parents’ knowledge is deepened on issues affecting their daughters and they are shown how to best support them and form healthy family relationships. Topics reflect feedback and demand, helping to deepen the long term impact of the program. Examples of some of the topics covered, include:
Engaging the Community
We work with strong women influencers and other community members in Kurdistan to help strengthen the quality and broaden the delivery of the SEED Girls Program. Each influencer is successful in their field of work, setting a positive example for SEED Girls participants to follow, including in music, medicine, business and technology.
Together with these inspiring women from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, we hope these videos will help young girls from across the region learn and grow their knowledge on the key issues of education, managing emotions, friendship, trust and, online safety, and be inspired to share it with others.
