About Girl Effect

Girl Effect works to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. We do this by connecting girls to each other and to the critical assets they need. We work to create lasting perception change by harnessing media in innovative ways and building social networks to develop girls' positive perceptions of themselves and shift how others see and value them.
We take a girl-centred approach to the challenges they face. We know that girls need support in multiple areas to break the cycle of poverty - focusing on single issues will never be enough. Only a holistic approach will work, so we developed the 5+1 Theory of Change to put this into action.
We believe there are 5 key assets that determine a girl's reality and 1 critical catalyst - perception change - that inspires behaviour change that creates empowered lives.
The 5 key assets are: Education, Health, Economic Security, Safety, and Voice and Rights.
When a girl is better educated, has access to sexual and reproductive healthcare information and services, has access and control of economic assets, is safe from violence and exploitation, and has the capabilities and confidence to make positive choices, she can break the cycle of poverty.
We add the catalyst of perception change to improve awareness and sensitivities of communities and families, and create an environment in which girls are better able to capitalise on the five assets. Together, the 5+1 creates a virtuous cycle of change, lifting girls, their families and communities out of poverty.
We currently operate in Rwanda, Nigeria and Ethiopia with headquarters in London.
About our branded media platform, Ni Nyampinga
Girl Effect Rwanda uses the power of brand thinking to promote positive social norm and behaviour change amongst girls and their communities in Rwanda. Ni Nyampinga is Rwanda’s first teen brand, developed by and for girls, redefining what it means to be an adolescent girl in their community. In just three years it has been established as a much loved and trusted brand, rooted in Rwandan culture. Ni Nyampinga is an idea, an identity. It's something that both belongs to, and is created by, Rwandan teenage girls. Translated as "a girl who is beautiful inside and out and makes good decisions", the term ‘ni nyampinga’ is a potent one in Rwandan culture.
Since its launch as a quarterly magazine and weekly radio shows by Rwandan girl journalists, there is a rich tale to tell about Ni Nyampinga, with some exciting early signs of impact.
