ON_EMPOWER IS A STORYTELLING
DIGITAL PLATFORM ABOUT
DEVELOPED BY GIRL MOVE ACADEMY
This platform gathers miniseries, documentaries,
and some talks with several personalities and international
CHANGEMAKERS SHARING THEIR STORIES
OF SETBACKS, RESILIENCE AND OVERCOMING.
30’ TO POWER CHANGE
What happens when you decide to challenge great international reference leaders and personalities to join Mozambican girls and young women on a zoom call? Magic! Here are some of these unlikely encounters between young Mozambican women and personalities from all over the world. Graça Machel, Melinda Gates, Vandana Shiva, Durão Barroso are just some of the guests. Real inspiration to CHANGE mentalities and empower the entire world.
DIFFERENT STORIES COMING TOGETHER AS ONE
This series has the same name as the successful event in 2019 which ended up being the “trampoline” for this platform’s creation. Together, Girl MOVERS and national and international speakers turn into unexpected duos and trios, sharing the same stage to build new stories on education, sustainability, politics, culture…proving that the true unity it’s only possible when made of diversity.
WOMEN OF IMPACT
They’re movement, diversity, unity talent and overcoming. They’re Mozambican women. Girl MOVERS that finished the CHANGE programme and left the Academy promising themselves to CHANGE Mozambique and the World. Where are they now? Years later, we decided to look for them and see what they’re doing. A journey to the universe of overcoming and resilience through the voice of these women, who move and influence the entire world around them.
ONe MANIFESTO 2020
On the 26th of November 2020 we took the first step of a path we’ll build together with the ONe Manifesto 2020. Hundreds of people joined our Girls and young women Changemakers on a journey moved by causes, to transform adversities into opportunities. A journey to power CHANGE, creating impact in our communities and the transformation of the planet. We do this for good, to create a new world, more connected, with no boundaries.
ONempowerment is born on the year the Covid19 pandemic
forced the entire world to a mandatory social distancing.
From this context of generalized fear and mistrust,
rises the idea of taking advantage of digitalization and create
THIS STORYTELLING HUB TO BRING CLOSER DIFFERENT CONTINENTS, CULTURES AND FIELDS OF KNOWLEDGE TOGETHER, AROUND ONE COMMON PURPOSE:
As an Academy for Female Leadership, Girl MOVE Academy,
saw in this platform the possibility for strengthening its mission and vision.
The major focus is not centered on gender issues,
but rather on the empowerment, wherever it may happen.
What if we can break the cycle of poverty of developing countries through a new generation of Mozambican women changemakers?
We are a Leadership Academy that multiplies women and girls potential by connecting different generations through a mentorship cascade process and activating grassroots leadership talent to solve sustainability challenges in their ecosystem.
We are driven by innovation, experiential learning, lab approach… More than ever we are connected around the same purpose. And our stories are coming together as one.
By becoming part of their stories, you raise their voice and empower their future.
