Home Girls is an online and offline support group and safe space for first daughters of immigrants to discuss the real experiences of childhood in marginalised communities. It works to help people connect with their multiple identities in a complex world – the worlds of their parents, their peers, and the worlds young women envisage for themselves.
We run monthly events (now online due to Ms Rona) and a weekly podcast that tackles a range of topics including anxiety and setting boundaries.
“It was April 2018, we were in a room full of women, amazing women, amazing women that were there to fight for the rights of other women. We spent five days learning how to be empowered, to be leaders and to dismantle patriarchy and work to end sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls. We were at the 2018 TuWezeshe Young Women’s Leadership Programme by FORWARD UK. At the end of the fellowship, we shed a few tears, took a lot of photos, laughed and dragged our suitcases to the train station – it was the end of our amazing week-long programme but unknowingly, that meant the beginning of Home Girls Unite.”– Hanna & Yasin, Co-Founders.
