The Girls Excellence Movement (GEM) is a registered non-profit youth organization that is into motivating, inspiring, mentoring and informing to transform girls into Great Women of Excellence. As part of our activities, we undertake monthly Motivational Outreach visits to Schools, Orphanages and rural communities where we encourage girls to strive for excellence in all their endeavours.
We also provide skills training as well as help secure scholarship opportunities for needy girls. We have been in existence since 2008 as Exotic Girls Excellence Club, but had to change our name in 2016 to Girls Excellence Movement.
GEM has since its inception, engaged and mentored over 20,000 girls on 56 outreach programs. GEM strives to attain its mission through the benevolent and passionate efforts, skills and resources of eighty-five (85) young professionals who work as Mentors, Volunteers and Team Leaders for no financial gain. We together as young professionals, have taken upon ourselves a task to inspire, educate, mentor, and inform to transform girls into great women of excellence.
Girls Excellence Movement (GEM) implements its vision and mission through the following programs. The monthly motivational outreach programs are held from February to November. Speakers drawn from diverse backgrounds with expertise in different fields serve as presenters. Topics are carefully selected to meet the needs of the particular school or community being visited.
We also host annual Career Building Fair during which GEM facilitates productive interaction between girls and successful women from diverse fields including; entrepreneurship, education, politics, architecture, engineering, law, business, health care, finance, armed forces, public service, IT/Technology, Arts etc.
