Audio Production Team 
Overview

GH recognises girls as the key to combating re generational poverty and as such puts girls at the centre of all we do. With country offices in Nigeria, Rwanda and Ethiopia and headquartered in London, UK, GH carries out activities both in the UK and overseas which bring employees and people working on behalf of the organisation into contact with girls. This means GH is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for girls. Their welfare is paramount and all reasonable steps must be taken to prevent them being harmed. To ensure this, GH has developed a Girl Safeguarding Policy of which each country office is tasked with its adoption, localization within its context and implementation.  As part process of adopting the global Policy, GirlHub Nigeria (GHN) developed a girl friendly version of the Policy, however, due to the levels of illiteracy in the states (Kano, Kaduna & Jigawa) where we work and recognising the importance of even the most illiterate and vulnerable girl understanding the Policy, GHN will record and produce an audio version in Q & A format of the Policy and Consent Form in Pidgin and Hausa languages.
