Project Girl Goes Global

Project Girl's Voices Without Borders initiative which began in 2010, has collective members engaged in cross cultural theatrical collaboration with young leaders throughout the world who are creating change in their communities. The objective of this program is to use the performing arts to shed light on conflict areas and global women's issues by working closely with local NGOs and youth organizations.

 

Project Girls, ages 14 and up are invited to be part of Voices Without Borders upon demonstrating an interest and passion for global human rights work.
