MADRE supports the intergenerational work for gender justice and advances leaders from every generation in campaigns to advance the rights of women and girls and LGBTQIA+ people of all genders.
Girls, including trans girls, are mobilizing and leading youth movements.
There is a balanced power-dynamic and recognition between girl activists and the adults that support them.
Queer, trans, Afro-descendent and Indigenous people and those who are disabled, refugees, enslaved or conscripted by armed groups are welcome, supported, and able to lead.
With MADRE’s support, Taller de Vida offers sports, art, and theater programs to help young people develop their artistic talents. What’s more, participants heal from war and discrimination by expressing themselves through acting, dance and painting. These programs help young war survivors envision — and work to create — a more just and peaceful world.VIEW OUR PARTNERS
Girls know best the needs of young people in their communities and how to mobilize their generation to action. Adults can play an important role in creating space for and fostering girls’ leadership, and have the perspective that comes from experience.
MADRE works with Deaf Girls Rescue in Uganda to advance and protect the rights of Deaf girls in the country. Together, we host skills-development workshops and educate local leaders on the rights of Deaf girls.
MADRE and YouWin, a collective of young Indigenous and LGBTQIA+ women in the Philippines, are organizing community workshops on environmental and gender justice. These workshops advance women’s and girls’ leadership in response and resilience to climate disaster.
