The goal of Girls 4 Girls
Girls-4-Girls is a girl-driven, collaborative learning platform that supports out-of-school girls and displaced young women through their learning journeys, both individually and collectively, through a mobile app and online mentoring interactions. Working with a variety of well established community safe spaces for young girls and displaced women, G4G will create a digital platform that helps them learn a variety of skills through video courses and collaborative work streams localized to their communities. Providing learning resources to these young girls and women would eliminate the barriers of cost they would incur learning, while being able to support their progress with mentors and collaborative learning groups that would act as accountability partners.
Girls-4-Girls deploys a mobile application and SMS text solution to its students with dashboard back-end. The dashboard acts both as a learning content repository and a virtual classroom that slots girls in similar locations and a similar age groups into one cohort. The virtual classroom exists for 1 to 3 months and incorporates videos, assignments and collaborative problems daily. Students commit to specific goals and can unlock badges, receive credits, and move up learning levels.
Girls-4-Girls adds in a digital mentor ship component using adaptive technology to provide each girl with a personalized learning journey that enables them to study according to their level. Once students complete a course, they have the opportunity to engage in competitions and compete for credits, which they can spend on themselves or their entreprises. These competitions in turn incentivize more girls to participate, expanding peer-to-peer mentorship, and further strengthening the community of students on the platform.
