The Girls Experiencing Migration (GEM) initiative supports a cohort of 14 civil society organizations that are committed to protecting the safety and rights of adolescent migrant girls in Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States.

This project is a partnership between Tides Foundation, Comic Relief US, and Global Fund for Children.

Based along the migration path, these local partners provide services to migrant girls journeying north, girls who have been detained, girls who have returned, and girls who think about leaving. The project also includes partners based in the United States that help migrant girls who have recently arrived, have been detained, or are adjusting to a new life in the United States.

In addition to supporting our partners’ programs and services for migrant girls, this project also aims to connect the partners with one another, strengthen their networks of peers and resources, and build collective advocacy.
