Girls’ Power Initiative (GPI) is a Nigerian NGO that is non-religious and non-sectarian. GPI has obtained UN ECOSOC Status and in 2007 was conferred with an International Award for Excellence.
GPI seeks to empower girls, especially those between the ages of 10-18 years, and to promote their sexual reproductive health, rights and responsibilities, through educational programmes, counselling, referral services and social action. GPI is co-ordinated from two regional centres in Southern Nigeria: Benin-city in Edo State and in Cross River State. The national secretariat/headquarters of GPI is housed in the South East Center, Calabar. GPI has also expanded its activities to Akwa Ibom and Delta States. GPI is active in a number of local and national coalitions on human trafficking and works closely with other NGOs on this issue. The main focus of GPI’s work on trafficking has been prevention, through the empowerment and education of young women and girls, about the differences between migration and trafficking. GPI has undertaken research to document what makes girls most susceptible to trafficking and has published two books based on their findings. GPI have developed programs and campaign messages to support girls to say NO to human trafficking. This has included reviewing Junior Secondary School curriculums to include modules on sexuality education, migration and trafficking and lobbying for better sexuality education in schools. This has consequently created a high level of awareness among young urban women about trafficking. GPI also offers support and skills trainings for women who have returned from trafficking situations.
