In general, GPI focus on assisting the girls to achieve personal empowerment and to reject inequality; building their leadership skills to overcome subservient roles and take on active engagement on equal basis with their male peers; educating them to take actions to overcome risks to their health arising from gender violence and discrimination. It is assumed that adolescents need to receive clear, protective messages about sexual decision-making, because they need to hear affirming messages about healthy relationships and healthy sexuality.
