Girl- Child empowerment
We are aware that the girl child has the ability and potential to change her self and others just like boys do So long as they are attended to, empowered and equipped with life skills based on respective personal preferences. We are confident that once we train a girl child, we would have trained the entire nation.
It’s a fact that more girls fail to achieve their goals due to a low esteem they attach to themselves that’s why we made it a priority to empower them with skills of self awareness which enables them to believe in themselves. This entire journey helps them make a rightful life changing decision. However, we don’t exclude boys who are willing to be helped.
