GlobalGirl Media UK  (GGMUK) empowers young women, especially those from disadvantaged communities, through digital media training, to bring their voices to the global media stage.  We give girls the tools and confidence to make content from their own powerful perspectives – changing the imbalanced media landscape.

‘(GlobalGirl Media) is an example of how educating one young woman can transform a community’ – Michelle Obama

‘GGM UK helped me decide what to do and get to where I am today’   

Here’s what we do.  We change the lives of young women like GlobalGirl Aisha Clarke, who went from never having picked up a camera to working in the industry today, as a direct result of GGM UK’s training.  Check out the short film.

Since our launch in 2016, GGM UK has gone from strength to strength.  Not only have we trained our first and second cohorts of GlobalGirlsbut their films have won a prestigious Gracies Award and been shown at Film Festivals and other events.  Our London GlobalGirls have spoken in public, been interviewed by wide-reaching platforms and of course continued to make great content from THEIR perspective.  We are building on the London GlobalGirls’ skills by providing them with mentors, opportunities and new trainings

See the amazing award-winning videos that our London GlobalGirls made for the training…
