Girl Lab is a female-focused platform aiming to educate women by sharing skills and experiences.
We want to support, empower and inspire women and girls to grow, excel and bring change to their communities.
We believe education is one of the most effective ways to promote gender equality and empower women and girls, achieving lasting social and economic changes.
We believe in a world where women and girls of all backgrounds are active voices in their communities.
We believe in a world where women's and girls' values, worth and dignity are fully respected; where they are treated fairly; and where they have equal opportunities.
We believe that by creating a network focused on helping women and girls through shared knowledge, we are building a stronger and more inclusive community.
We believe that women and girls can promote systemic change in their lives, organizations and communities.
The online platform will be split into two main sections to help us structure the diversity of our content and make it easier for everyone — not just tech savy people.
This section will be for sharing personal stories and social commentary, through non-fiction essays and fictional short stories, about a wide range of interesting subjects.Politics — Life — Style — Work — Etc
This section will be for learning new skills, talents and concepts in an structured way, through a variety of mediums — making the process interesting and inclusive to any level of knowledge and different learning styles.Culture — Social Studies — Science — Tech — Health
In order to make education inclusive, we need to go beyond the online world. At the end of any of our lessons, a presentation and a printable kit will be available to download, so our readers can share it with other women with no internet access. Our plan for the future is to also incorporate more online and offline mediums, including:
