Our latest accomplishments!

Dear GlobalGiving Friends,

We are excited to share with you our latest accomplishments! Girls To Women was recently named a Top-Rated Women's Nonprofit at GreatNonprofits.org. Please visit Great Nonprofits to read and/or write a review on Girls To Women.

 Our after-school program continues to be an on-going success; please read below for the latest news. Thank you for your continued support and interest!

All the best,

G2W Staff

***************************

 The after-school program continues to have a high focus on homework completion as was requested by both the girls and their parents. The girls are focused on achieving and maintaining high academic grades, and they continue to create a safe environment of learning where girls support one another during homework time. Joanna, a 3rd grade participant, was recently named Student of the Month at her school and received two medals for her high performance on the Benchmark Tests.

Admittance to College Prep School

We are proud to say that two of our participants were recently admitted to our neighbor college-prep school, Eastside College Preparatory School. One participant will be entering as a freshman and the other as a 6th grader. We are excited that they are well on their way to preparing to attend four-year colleges! Their achievement is one that the entire Girls To Women community celebrates. When the girls announced their admittance, the other girls and staff celebrated with high-fives, hugs and a room full of smiles!

*Please see our attached report for more updates on our after-school program!
