It focuses on telling and sharing the voices or rural girls on social media, some of the stories will be by the girls and the other stories are done by journalists under our mentorship programme

The stories will be written, filmed and edited by young girls, citizen journalists, aspiring female journalists, mentees in efforts to enhance their skills set and broaden their horizon on news writing and reporting.
