Who We Are

Girl Power is an international women’s organization founded by Pastor Jessica Kayanja in 2005, with a vision to equip and empower the total woman physically, economically and most importantly spiritually.


The organization’s distinctiveness lies in the diverse inter-denominational composition and a well curved out niche of recognizing that women were uniquely fashioned by God to play a complementary rather than a competitive role alongside the men to achieve greater good of the society.


We believe that the first ministry ever accorded to the woman in the bible was the ministry of helps because God said of the woman when he first mentioned her that “Let us make man a helper fit for him” Genesis 2:18. We believe in the divine role of a wife and a mother as documented in the bible and the priest hood of the man as the head of the home , we also acknowledge that being submissive does not make us less stronger as women but shows that we walk in line with the word of God.


Since its inception, Girl Power has set out to help Women discover the exceptional traits that God has endowed them with and exploit these strengths to attain their individual destinies for the greater good of society.


Over the years, Girl Power has organized several conventions specially tailored to address and empower the holistic woman in different areas of life.
