The pandemic pushed GFS to really think about what we’re here for and how we could make sure we were still making a difference for girls and young women.

We want to thank you all for your ongoing support. We at GFS have inspired by the courage and resilience shown by our girls and young women during such a challenging time.

Returning to groups

We are delighted to say that the majority of our groups have now returned to face-to-face sessions. If you’d like to check the status of your nearest GFS group, you can find them here.

GFS at home

With many parents at home and under pressure to keep children entertained, we felt that we could be a big help by making some of our activities available online.

We have released a number a themed activity packs that are fun for everyone and feature stereotype busting women that can help all children realise that girls can do anything.

If you’ve enjoyed the activities, take a picture and tag is in it on Facebook or Instagram – we love to see you having a great time.

The GFS Big Dreamers’ Club

The GFS Big Dreamers’ Club is our new online space for girls. The pandemic has allowed us to think creatively about how we can build girls’ confidence, resilience and self-esteem.

Big Dreamers Club consists of various packages of sessions for girls age 8-13 to focus on specific issues that are relevant to them. These are on pause while we support our groups to get back to face-to-face delivery, but we hope to relaunch them soon. You can find out more about it here.

Virtual GFS

A number of our groups held their sessions online over Zoom durinf the pandemic. We are so grateful to our volunteers who have adapted ensure that girls have had the opportunity to speak to their friends. Friendships are incredibly important for young girls and we are happy to give them the chance to lean on their GFS community.
