Global Sorority works with the UN in Vietnam

Global sorority has just returned from Vietnam. 

When there, we collaborated with the United Nations school in Hanoi. We trained an amazing group of future world leaders, who between them represented 11 different countries, including the US and Canada



Part of our long term sustainable strategy is to offer our leadership and self development workshops on a fee for service basis to communities and schools which can easily cover the cost, and proceeds from that will then go to provide the same learning for a group of girls in their country or community who would otherwise not have access to this essential education.



In Vietnam because of our work and connection with the UN school, we were then able to work with an organization called Blue Dragon, that works with at-risk youth, and survivors of sexual trafficking, and we were able to give them the leadership training as well.



Participants of both groups rated their overall experience and their self-development by sharing where they were at the beginning on a scale from 1 to 10, and where they were by the time they had completed our EOS training.

 
They answered questions in areas such as: 

 

Confidence

 
Self acceptance.


Self love

 
Communication skills


Healthy choices


Leadership


And on the level of self belief 


I am good enough


I am strong enough


I am capable


I am confident


I am a good person


My thoughts and feeling s matter. 

  
We shouldn’t have been surprised, but their outcomes were quite astounding!

 

Many started off on the low end of the self evaluation scale, (regardeless of socioeconomics, education or or culture. This shows that these vital internal foundations have little to do with the external) However by the end 100% of the girls had improved in most of the key areas. Many girls noted an increase of double where they had started out.

 

These soft skills may sound intangible, but starting from the inside, and building a strong foundation of who we are and how we perceive our self-worth and capabilities, gives us all an immense advantage when it come to our leadership at work, and in our lives.  We know that this kind of developmental learning about self and others is what is going to give  girls the positve tools they need to move forward. Formal education alone is not enough. 

 

We couldn’t have done it without you! Even though it is our goal to become self-sufficient future we hope that you will stay with us as we grow.

 

We want you to remain partners and supporters of our work, because you believe in it, and you want girls to experience equal human rights and to help lead our future… Not because you have to.  


Our chapter in Mexico has be doing phenomenal!  Please see some of the work that has gone on there since we started a year ago.

Please enjoy these photographs. Each of the girls from both the UN school and Blue Dragon created a butterfly with their positive transformations written on their wings.

Because of you this happened!

Jump for joy! Feeling free of self limiting belief
Jump for joy! Feeling free of self limiting belief

 

Once in a while isn't it nice to know that you’re actually creating an impact in people’s lives! That you are appreciated for your contribution and that the things you care about are really being positively effected!?

I think it's important! So I'm here to share with you beautiful story that will hopefully light up your heart, because you made it possible!

I'd like to introduce you to Thuli. We met her last year when we were working with young women survivors of sexual violence in South Africa.

Thuli has a gentle, fun energy that children love to be around. They seek her out, probably to experience that beautiful loving smile shining on them. Unfortunately Thuli herself experienced an extremely challenging and traumatic childhood, but thankfully this is one of those beautiful “from there to here” stories.

 Keep Reading 

Thuli entered our tiny mobile outbuilding, which sat in the township’s muddy police station yard.  She ducked through the low doorway and entered inside, along with 17 other young women, most of whom would be staying to working in our Elements of SUCCESS leadership program for the next week. Their faces showed trepidation, not knowing exactly what would unfold or who we were, or why we had come all this way to meet them! 

As we worked together it became apparent that Thuli was a natural leader in her gentle way. Despite how shy she was and how hard the work was, Thuli’s desire to learn and participate shone through. She was never late, she showed up every day, rain or shine. She was also brave enough to share her harrowing personal story for our documentary.

 Life is extremely hard living in the townships of Western Cape. When you combing being a girl, living in an area with some of the statistically highest sexual violence rates in the country and living in stark poverty, just walking to the public toilet area becomes a huge risk. Can you imagine being terrified to go to the bathroom? knowing that someone would be waiting there for you and no one would come to help you. 

We stay in touch with Thuli and continue to offer support and encouragement. She took what she learned from our course and then she shared it with the little girls in her dance class, she applied and was excepted to go to school for early childhood development, she has started a small and very successful printing business, and has been doing spoken word performances, writing poetry to express herself and heal. And she is doing citizen journalism in her community. Telling the stories of brave women just like her! The ripple effect is so huge when you empower young women to find their inner leader! 

This all happened in less than a year! and she has tearfully told me that it all started in that little mobile outbuilding, with someone there who cared about her and believed in her and gave her the tools and support she needed to create a better life for herself and to impact her community!

And that someone who cared was you! 

Thank you! From South Africa, Mexico, Vietnam, Lebanon India and beyond. Where young women are becoming leaders in their own lives and creating positive change with your help!

Thank you! 

Tia
