Summary

Girls around the world are marginalized, subject to abuse and violence but are given the smallest collective voice to stand up against their situation. Global Sorority delivers essential leadership education to a global community of young women. We focus on the internal strengths and tools needed for girls to live to their full potential. We provide them with education, resources, community support and a platform from where they feel heard and valued.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The problem is, girls don't just suffer in far away places, they are suffering right here on our own steps. They suffer from self-limiting beliefs and they practice self harm. Cutting, eating disorders and drug use are ways in which girls are exhibiting their pain but they are also subject to discrimination, violence and over sexualization in the media. Girls need a safe space to create positive community and self image. They need to believe in themselves to become great leaders.

How will this project solve this problem?

Global Sorority already works all over the world to bring leadership training to girls but a huge part of our mission is to incorporate the true meaning of global and sisterhood. We want to create and establish a strong platform from the US where girls here can benefit just as much and become valuable contributors. With more girls in the US becoming strong globally connected leaders we hope to strengthen our outreach and support of girls in the developing world through Global Sorority chapters.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long-term impact of Global Sorority's work is a greater awareness of gender based solutions, more girls in school, more women leaders in positions that will positively effect economies, global health, safety and the environment. Before women can have a voice and become the leaders of tomorrow we need to start with girls and give them the tools they'll need to succeed. We need to ensure our own sustainability so we can continue to support girls to create their own success in life.
