Rites for Girls CIC mission is to make the lives of girls safer, kinder and better supported by creating circles of girls, their mothers and our facilitators – an international community of women and girls changing their world.
Girls Journeying Together groups provide mutual support for girls through their adolescence and proudly into young womanhood guided by a facilitator. Girls’ groups offer monthly support for preteen girls as they practice being true to themselves, learn about puberty, share their hopes and fears, and help each other into their teens.
We train women to facilitate Girls Journeying Together groups while also supporting the girl’s mothers. Trainees become ‘the woman their 11-year-old needed’ and are provided with meaningful work that fits around other commitments, enabling them to serve in a diverse range of cultures bringing back the power of community in a way that appeals to today’s girls.
