Our vision is a world where marginalised stories are represented with respect, where the media is inclusive and where young women from all communities stand up as leaders, speak out and contribute to developing an equal media landscape.
By teaching young girls storytelling and media skills, we help them both to find their voice and gain the tools and confidence to communicate their messages to the rest of the world. Our mission is to help girls grow into powerful independent women with self-respect and a unique voice.
We educate girls and young women about technology and storytelling techniques, enabling them to communicate their stories.
We draw inspiration from across the globe and throughout history to turn dreams into reality.
We give guidance and build confidence to empower women and girls to positively change the media landscape and the world around them.
We connect with each other across all boundaries to create strong bonds of support and opportunity.
We learn and build trust with each other to reduce isolation and build peer to peer networks.
GLOBALGIRL MEDIA INTERNATIONAL
GlobalGirl Media UK (GGM UK) operates as an affiliate charity to the established, international organisation Global Girl Media (GGM), which was launched in the USA in 2008, by Amie Williams. GGM has trained over 300 young women in numerous countries (including USA, UK, Greece, Morocco, Mexico, Kosovo and South Africa), and produced over 450 videos and 400 blogs.
GGM UK exists as a separate entity to GGM, maintaining full financial and organisational autonomy, but benefits from GGM’s global network, brand, curriculum and established business model. The affiliated organisations share information, expertise and resources. The cooperation enables GGM UK graduates to connect with their international peers, as well as share GGM UK content and work on a global distribution network, GGMN TV. It also offers GGM’s graduates access to the stories and reports generated by GGM UK, broadening out the pool of information and support offered to all GlobalGirls.
