The Guardian Girls is a global partnership initiative bringing together a wide range of stakeholders dedicated to joining their efforts and using action-based strategies to empower vulnerable girls and women to defend themselves from any forms of violence through sports and beyond.
At Guardian Girls International, we sincerely believe in strong partnerships and collaborations with United Nations agencies, governments, multilateral organizations and international sports federations to achieving inclusive, sustainable and accessible program opportunities for every girl and woman in preventing and responding to gender-based violence around the world.
United Nations agencies
GGI works closely with our Strategic Partner such as UNFPA, the United Nations' sexual and reproductive agency, and collaborate with other UN entities. The GGI Secretariat is hosted by KIF Global, while operations are run by the GGI’s own independent governance structure. Together with the UNFPA and other UN entities, we work with their global headquarters and country offices at the global, regional and national levels.
International Sports Federations
As GGI remarkably values the power and benefits of sports physically and mentally and how sports could impact people's quality of life for better, the GGI partners and works closely with international sports federations to carry out the Guardian Girls program through KIF Global's national chapters and partner's national federations for girls and women around the world.
As GGI advances the Sustainable Development Goal 5, GGI partners with governments to develop unique grassroots responses for country-driven priorities and strategies in eliminating gender-based violence against vulnerable girls and women. Working closely with national and local governments, diplomatic missions and other partners on the ground, GGI greatly values the trust and support of all our partners and collaborators.
GGI partners with a broad range of civil society organizations at global, national and local levels to develop a global Guardian Girls movement empowering girls and young women to defend themselves from all forms of GBV. GGI ensures that KIF Global and global partners hold discussions and consultations with key stakeholders in the community to galvanize support for the programme, and ensure community participation and ownership of the interventions.
GGI works closely with your companies as corporate partners to develop a shared value partnership, compelling marketing strategies and action plans that align with the needs of the community and your company’s philanthropic goals. Forming partnerships with corporate sponsors also enables us to drive sustainable impact for the marginalized girls and women around the world, while advancing your business goals and making a true difference in the region where you do business.
