Being a GFS leader means having the opportunity to enable young women and girls to have a place of activity they can call their own. Friendships are formed between girls, their families and the leaders which can last the rest of their lives. It gives a sense of satisfaction to see girls blossom and grow in confidence and gives them a sense of self-worth.
