"GEM is a movement that I fully endorse. The people behind it are people who have proven beyound reasonable doubt that they care about their fellow women especially girls. I have followed them since 2012 and some of their activities and pictures make me think they are doing a great job and deserves to be supported and encouraged. I am glad to be associated with them. I am GEM Obour, I support the Girls Excellence Movement"

"Good job GEM. Hearing about them and actually seeing them in action is different. It is very encouraging, the way they are structured and the commitment from the volunteers I saw today. This needs to be a national program, I hope government will learn from the content they are generating"
