The Girls Friendly Society in England and Wales (campaign name GFS Platform) was established in 1875, within the Anglican Church, and is still a national and international movement, helping young women to help themselves by giving them opportunities to develop their potential, pursue aspirations, grow in confidence and to learn to value themselves and others equally.
