Girl Project is the vision of founder Claudine Naganuma, it is a creative space focused on the wellbeing and self expression of girls aged 11-on.
Pulling from a method of love, GIRL Project exists in resistance to the variety of dangers that girls in Oakland face, including physical assault, kidnapping, gun violence, inequity, food deserts, and the mental health issues that can germinate due to these challenges. Girl Project resists through creating spaces to find connection and solidarity through Sisterhood. Continuous inclusion of community members as mentors and partnering with local businesses and neighboring organizations to join in the teaching of our girls about solidarity, expression, representation, nutrition and food consciousness are also crucial to the program.
