Girls Collective is an empowerment group set up specifically for young Muslim girls. The sole aim of the Girls Collective is to increase aspirations and empower young girls to go and realise their true potential.

Girls Collective is primarily aimed at engaging young Muslim girls, aged 15-16. Many of the participants will be pupils at faith schools in Sheffield. Our Girls Collective project runs for 5 months, from January 2020 - May 2020. The majority of our activities will take place on the Engage Floor at Element HQ. However, there will also be a range of external events and localised meetings organised as part of our delivery schedule. The project will involve engaging a minimum of 25 young girls.

Success so far...

The project is in its early stages at the minute, but project officer Nabeela Mowlana is excited about where it's going;

I've been really excited to get this project started, we've had a brilliant response so far from girls in different schools across the city and I can't wait to get started
