We've developed initiatives that help girls build self-esteem, increase media literacy, and connect to positive role models. Through these powerful programs and workshops, young women and girls are inspired to discover their voice and recognize their greatness. 

            The Griot Girl Project 

The Griot Girl Project combines history, storytelling, 

and journaling to empower girls to shape and share

their own narratives in their own voice.

           Dream Shapers

The Dream Shapers workshop provides girls

with the tools to discover their strengths,

set goals and develop a dream blueprint. 


BrandUDay! merges media literacy and basic branding principles to help girls develop a healthy self-esteem and positive personal brand.

                          BGU Listening Sessions 

Girls are rarely provided with a platform to discuss issues of relevance to them. BGU Listening Sessions put hot button issues front and center to allow girls to share perspectives and put forth tangible solutions to help address them.  We help them understand how instrumental they are in sparking chage and with each session, we earn their trust and witness girls gain confidence, become more informed and empowered!

Our programs aim to make certain every girl understands the power she holds to shift narratives in ways that are affirming and life changing. We recognize that it takes a village to empower a child and we're grateful for the partners who have helped us move our important work forward.
