A series of “Be the GIRL” Workshops will take participants through the process of change and enable them to identify and act on issues they have identified in their community. Participants will learn about Advocacy and its methods, such as, Circle of Influences and Project Planning, among other skills. There will be 2 compulsory (virtual) workshops with the following objectives:
