WHAT IS GIRL UP? 
 

GIRLUP (https://girlup.org/about) was founded by the UN Foundation in 2010 as an  initiative to help/support UN agencies that focus on adolescent girls. The major idea is to  build leadership within individual girls, including self-confidence, personal accountability  

and long-term aspirations. Girls have a tremendous, often untapped power to change the  world. Girl Up helps girls access their inner power to advance the skills, rights, and  opportunities of girls everywhere. It is created to inspire all to join and participate in the  mission of bringing a change in the lives of young girls, women around us and to generate  awareness about Gender Equality, Gender Violence, Education, STEM for Social Good,  Sports, etc. These programs help girls to hone their skills in community organizing, goal  setting, and effective communication. Change-makers involved in the Club report noticed  confidence, higher levels of civic participation, and a stronger conviction and ability to take  action for global good. Girl Up envisions a world where every girl can reach her full  potential. 

A world where girls are empowered and our future move towards a brighter sunshine.

 

GIRL UP PREET 
We believe in Expressions that Empower! 

Girl Up Preet is a change oriented social club under a global campaign of the United Nations  foundation which has been actively participating with the community to tackle and change  the gender dynamics that are extremely unacceptable in today's world. Equality is what  matters for us and we are working to establish a Society that gives equal representation and  opportunities to people irrespective of their gender or sex. Preet came into inception when  young change-oriented students of SGNDKC came together and pledged to make an impact  on the world in the best way possible. 

We at Preet are committed to provide support to every idea for the betterment of young girls.  Girl Up Preet is a group of dedicated youth who have joined together to take action and  change lives, empowering both people in their own communities and adolescent girls to rise  up simultaneously. 

Preet is a growing grassroots movement to create a wonderful world for these: girls to  grow.We believe in equal opportunity and the idea that girls can be wondrous stars. 

Preet has always been the foremost helping hand in every way possible. Amid the Covid-19  Pandemic we have maintained an active support system with the community for a better  living which is adversely affected by the deadly virus. It has affected even more the women  and girls of our society in many ways possible. Women make up 39 percent of global  employment but account for 54 percent of overall job losses. One reason for this greater  effect on women is that the virus is significantly increasing the burden of unpaid care, which  is disproportionately carried by women. With this our role becomes even more crucial to  extend a helping hand to the people in need in every way possible. We adopt multiple  strategies to improve the condition of the women. Preet believes in training women &  adolescent girls in various aspects to make them to come out of their inhibitions and to 

involve in fruitful activities that make them aware of their strong standing in the society  economically and otherwise too. The pandemic did restrict Preet from taking initiatives at  ground level but the amount of Impact we have already created via our various online events  have given us even more zeal and enthusiasm to work for the cause. Preet organised  fundraising events in the past and some awareness programme with successful people in their  respective fields to have a better sight for career development. Even during these trying times  Preet has been able to establish better communication with the women and girls around via  many ongoing virtual/online projects.

There were 90+ candidates who joined  this webinar. The webinar basically focused on how to manage funds in an  adequate manner as Covid-19 has told each one of us the importance of  money. We never know when and how much funds we need the very next  moment. So, we were told various initiatives that can be taken now and will  help us in our crucial period. Many of the youngsters joined the webinar and  were planning to study abroad for the further studies. So, the main answer  regarding that was we need to think of future from now only or else we will  either have to sacrifice our dreams or we will get in trouble. 

Some of our online Events happening over  Social Media 

#uncagedsunday

Uncaged Sunday, an awareness series initiated by GirlUp Preet on 24th  January on the occasion of National girl child day.  

Our aim with this series was to spread awareness about the gender based  discrimination that women face in our society. We introduced everyone to  the strong feminist leaders like, Savitribai Phule and Kamini Roy who  have worked to change the mindset of people towards women and broke  all stereotypes and leads of oppression over women.  

Both, Savitribai Phule and Kamini Roy are our inspiration and were  feature of uncaged sunday series. Being a feminist and an anti-caste  discrimination activist, Savitribai went through a lot to bring up the  

much needed reform that was education for girls and women’s rights. On  the other-hand, kamini as well was a staunch feminist who championed  causes she believed in, helped advanced feminism in india. 

Voice Out Women 

We at GirlUp Preet initiated a series of Voice Out Women, wherein women talk  about the thoughts and feelings they have towards the whole issue of  discrimination on every step they take. Rather it be patriarchy or masculine and  feminine, there a lot of double standards created by the society which needed to be  overlooked. Women aren't the only ones who suffer because of patriarchy. It  harms men too. By shaming men for being sensitive to saying that they are not  man enough if they show their feelings, patriarchy doesn't help anyone, not the  victim, and certainly not the perpetrator. From seeing the women in your house  always taking care of the household duties to being witness to catcalling by men  who you look up to - the seeds of sexist behaviour are sown right from childhood.  Despite some progress, one has to accept the fact that the change has been slow  and more needs to be done. Talk about marriage or precautions, womens are  always asked to sacrifice, not any more, there are a lot of myths created about all  of such things which need to be banned and Preet is always there to take the  initiative.

PRIDE MONTH 

In many parts of the world, June is the ‘Gay Pride Month’, dedicated to  celebrating the LGBTQ community and their struggle against discrimination  and social ostracization. We, at Girl Up Preet took the initiative to bring forth  Pride Literacy Month. We covered different aspects of Pride community such  as, pride flag, Myths and facts, Section 377 and so on.  

Girl Up Preet celebrated pride month in a full-fledged manner. We aimed to  educate people more and more about LGBTQIA+ community. Last but not the  least, lawyers Menaka Guruswamy and Arundhati Katju were featured and  were the ones that stood against all the odds and decriminalised  

homosexuality. 

 

TOKYO OLYMPIC  

A wonderful and mesmerising initiative taken by GirlUp Preet to  

celebrate women in sports. Under this initiative, we highlighted women  that participated in Tokyo Olympics, 2020 and made our nation proud. 

We understand that women in sports are only celebrated when they bring  laurels.  

Sports, undoubtedly is the most important socio-cultural learning  experience that should be afforded by women too, that’s why we, at girlup  preet brought forward the most charismatic women across the country  who not only made us proud but also inspired every girl of our country.  Women have excelled in every week whether it is household chores or  Sports.
