Learn More About Us

In February 2020, Johanna Friman and Vendela Barck founded Pamoja Girls. The aim is to make girls all over the globe believe in themselves and each other. The mission was to create a book for organisations, schools, social initiatives and entrepreneurs. 


Today the Pamoja Girls Book sparks informal discussions around topics such as "My boobs", "My family" or "My role models" which we believe will in turn empower all girls to find their self-worth and individuality.

156 female volunteers aged 18-to 35 made the Pamoja Girls Books possible by creating the content. Country Ambassadors from 31 countries have represented us in their communities, schools and initiatives. Our Country Ambassadors have held workshops in their locations to make sure that the material is accurate for every teenage girl regardless of whether they’re located in Sao Palo, Jakarta or Copenhagen. We share the common understanding that this is something we lacked growing up and believe strongly it will benefit all girls regardless of background. Together, we’ve overcome distance, time zones, language barriers and cultural differences and we’ve united behind our common goal of empowering girls for generations to come.

"We launched the Pamoja Girls Books in December 2022. Today, female youth leaders all over the globe are using the materials in the Pamoja Girls Books on a weekly basis to empower their young girls. They also join our Leaders Community to connect and grow with like-minded leaders all over the world. Together, we are making a change!"

Pamoja Girls Books



We believe that if more teenage girls can meet and discuss topics that unites girls, the world be a better place. By providing an opportunity for young girls to discuss topics together with other girls and find their own right or wrong, without anyone telling them what to do or think. An opportunity for girls to become their own friend.


We create learning material as a basis for starting discussions and bringing girls together in our communities. We collaborate and create partnerships with social organisations, communities, and NGOs worldwide to provide them with material to empower their girls. The workbook is being used in their community, in our community, in every community.

The Pamoja Girls Leaders Book and the Girls Book are made for social organisations, schools, sports clubs or any other kind of organization, association or company that unites teenage girls. The purpose of the books are to create informal conversations, debates and talks through workshops with exercises among topics like for example my boobs, my uniqueness or my special place.
