"Elementary and Middle School can be tough! I believe in girls learning to appreciate one another and building each other up by being confident in who they are, and kind and compassionate to others, instead of tearing each other down. I know first hand how important it is for us girls to feel good about being our most authentic self." Empowering girls to know and understand their self-worth is crucial, especially with the tough pressures of today's media driven society." ~ Lauren Galley
Adolescent girls in Kenya who are marginalized face considerable risks and vulnerabilities that affect their educational status, health, and general well-being. They are at high risk for early marriage, unintended pregnancy, early and unprotected sex, sexual assault, and HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. They have limited income-earning opportunities and high rates of illiteracy, and often experience violence and social isolation. In addition to all these challenges, they are frequently living in the context of acute poverty at the household and community levels.
"Every girl, regardless of her geographical location or economic situation deserves mentorship. Empowerment, self-worth and the ability to use her voice for good not only shifts the future landscape of women and girls, it helps solidify support and education through peers around the globe." ~ Lauren Galley
