To bring The Girl Power Project's peer-mentoring program to 100 communities, who will train 100 girls to be mentors, who will then empower 100 girls each.
That's 1 million empowered girls.
The Girl Power Project is a transformational program that targets girls in rural communities as they enter adolescence – the most vulnerable juncture of their lives. The project builds girls' positive self-worth and strengthens their critical decision-making skills in ways that empower them and steer them clear of risky and life-threatening situations. Those girls then become mentors to their peers – passing on the torch until their entire community is lit by empowered girls.
The Girl Power Project is creating a sisterhood that transforms lives from the inside out by cultivating girls who are bold enough to look you in the eye, strong enough to state their rights and free enough to lead their country forward.
