Girl's Empowerment

GIRLS EMPOWERMENT!

ETIV do Brasil is looking for volunteers to support our projects focused on Girls Empowerment and Girls Health, which includes 6 different Girls Empowerment Clubs and 4 Girls Health Clubs that are offered throughout Itacare as well as a brand new Digital Marketing Club for girls and an Environmental Action Club that begins in March of 2022. These programs are connected to three international projects called LitWorld, HerStory Campaign and Global Glow.

ETIV do Brasil currently has four different teachers running the Girls Clubs and our Health Clubs for Girls. in four different neighborhoods of Itacaré. While they have been able to do some amazing work, they do welcome the support of volunteers interested in helping them to coordinate, prepare, administer and facilitate the clubs.

Since each Girls Club only takes place once a week, interested volunteers would have to combine this project with another one we currently offer in order to reach the minimum of 20 hours/week of work we require from all our volunteers.

Our LitClubs align with three of the 17 goals that the United Nations has adopted on its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Click on each image below to learn more.
