#IGNITE Series

GESL premiered its IGNITE feminist lecture series in 2018! IGNITE is a blended-format series focusing on Violence Against Women & Girls. Through local events, podcasts, videos, and print, we aim to enhance the advocacy & activism skills of our participants.


Each of our lectures are published as part of our IGNITE podcast series, and each will be released in this format to provide access to a wider audience! Please visit our Soundcloud page to hear our podcast and follow for updates!


Don't miss our most recent IGNITE event, a virtual panel of youth activists from in and around Freetown discussing their efforts during Covid-19!


Coming Soon

We are so excited for our IGNITE E-Learning Series which begins in October 2020.

Stay tuned for more! 



GESL nurtures and enhances the leadership skills of  young girls to become effective advocates and social change agents in their communities.
