Who We Are

Who Is GirlsCare?

GirlsCARE is a merging of girl power, of Jamaican climate scholar activists determined to use our platform and voices to create space and empower young women to advocate for gender justice in climate action

  • Sexual and reproductive health rights and access are disrupted due to climate induced disasters

  • We use our platforms to advocate for climate actions that are gender responsive.
  • We provide training and information on climate advocacy.
