What happens when you're gone?

Working together.
Working together.

Hello, 

We hope that you have moved into the fall season with lots of great summer memories in tow.

 

People often ask us“ what happens after you leave a group of girls that you've been working with?” How do you know that you’re work will be sustainable and that they will use it to improve their lives and communities when you’re not there?”

 

These are great questions! Do you love the feeling you get when someone asked you an important question and you have the answer?:)

Our answer is simple, straightforward and honest.

 

The leadership tools we teach can be applied no-matter what a girls social, educational, or socioeconomic status might be. If she goes on to lead a fortune 500 company, or stays right where she is and lives out a traditional roll in the family and community. Our leadership program is a 14-hour course intensive, called the Elements Of Success.  We use progressive, collaborative, and holistic leadership development, that will allow each young woman to become a better leader, starting with a deep understanding of self.

 

Our programming is very much based on an inside out approach; when you build a strong you! It’s hard for anyone to take that away, or for it to run out when the funding is gone. And that is the most important piece to sustainability. Can we give the power back to the recipient to create the change that they and their community may need.

 

She won’t run out of knowing her core values,

She won’t lose her sense of self-awareness

No one can take away her ability to think critically or her solution focused mindset.

She can’t unlearn the things she's discovered about her relationship to herself and her body.

Drought doesn’t diminish her understanding of positive communication and negotiation 

 

The work we do is so vital, but so missing from the puzzle. A girl child could go all the way through the educational system and still lack everything it takes to be truly successful. When her belief systems around her value and worth haven’t shifted, if her ability to think critically and outside the box that was created for her is shut, if she doesn’t have a deep understanding of who she is, so that she can stand strong in her roll as a leader, then education alone wont have the impact that we’re hoping for.

 

We know that no matter what, the work that you make possible with us will shift and change a girl for the rest of her life.

 

We also create strategic partnerships with organizations in the communities that we work in, so that we can keep track, support and stay connected to what is happening in their lives.

 

It’s a huge goal for Global Sorority this year to get our online community platform up and running, so that girls have a place to come together and share in safe space, and learn, no matter where they are in the world.  (Calling on anyone who would love to be our community hero in this effort to bring our work to a global online platform:)

 

We are also starting to go back to some of the communities and partnerships that have been really successful and that our work had a huge impact on. Like Global Concerns India.  In 2013 we worked in the slums of Bangalore with an amazing group of young women whom many were on the cusp of being pulled from school and married off. Happily we can report that many of those girls are still in school today and are going on to university. Un-heard of!

 

We are in talks with the directors who supported that group so amazingly after we left to find a way that we can start a continuous ongoing Global Sorority chapter there. This will be our next full time running GS program outside of North America.

We would love for you to be a part of this growth and expansion. And to help add that vital and imperative piece to the puzzle when we are talking about girl’s education and female equality.

 

“A girl has to believe in her own value and potential, before she can convince anyone else”

 

Warmth and Blessings from the GS team.
