Welcome to GlobalGirl Media UK
GlobalGirl Media UK (GGM UK) empowers girls from underserved communities in digital media skills to find their voices on the global media stage. GlobalGirls are disrupting the dominant media narrative.
‘(GlobalGirl Media) is an example of how educating one young woman can transform a community’ – Michelle Obama, Former First Lady USA
We are proud to introduce our new website.
It’s been an exciting year so far for GGM UK. Not only have we trained our first cohort of girls, but their films have won a prestigious Gracies Award and public screenings at high profile events. We also continue to build on the London GlobalGirls’ skills by running new trainings.
Check out the amazing two award-winning videos that our London GlobalGirls made for the training…
